I’d encourage any homebrew to enter competitions. If your sense of competition isn’t enough to make you enter, feedback is very useful and you can often go along and taste a great selection of other beers for inspiration and mild inebriation.
Please have a look at the BJCP schedule for an overview of the big global comps.
Scottish Craft Brewers Competition in 24 January 2016. This is a limited styles competition.
The Homebrew Festival is held on June 10-12 at Market Bosworth Rugby Club.
