Our competition - heads above the rest

The Los Angeles International Beer Competition recognizes the finest in beers. Celebrating its 16th year, our event rivals other contests with an esteemed judging panel, an exciting tasting event held in the summer and a comprehensive public education program during the LA County Fair.

The 16th annual beer judging takes place April 9 - 10. Early bird registration deadline is March 1, 2016. Final deadline for entries is March 16, 2016.

The beer competition partners with the renowned wine, spirits and extra virgin olive oil competitions each year. For 75 years, our competitions have showcased the finest vintages, distilled beverages and extra virgin olive oils from countries throughout the world, and illustrated time and time again why the Los Angeles International Competitions are considered the most prestigious. Our rich history is a strong foundation upon which we are building with greater consumer outreach. We look forward to your participation in this great event.

The Los Angeles County Fair Association guarantees greater exposure for the winning entries offering consumers access to some of the world's finest brews.
