The United States Brewers Cup (USBrC) is an exciting competition that highlights and celebrates the art of manual brewing. Competitors will perform three services, Compulsory, Open Service, and Audience Service. Compulsory & Open Service are judged by skilled coffee tasters. The Compulsory is a blind tasting, the competitors all brew the same coffee on their chosen manual devices. During Open Service competitors will brew and present their chosen coffee to the judges panel.

There are two types of events that take place around the country leading up to the USBrC — the Preliminaries, which have just concluded, and two Qualifying Competitions (called CoffeeChamps). Brewers must compete at a CoffeeChamps event to qualify for the national championship.

There will be 36 Brewers Cup competitors at each Qualifying Competition. The top 12 competitors from each of the two CoffeeChamps events are advancing to compete in the U.S. Coffee Championships in Seattle, WA, from April 20 - 22, 2018. The winner of the U.S. Brewers Cup will represent the United States in the 2018 World Brewers Cup Championship.
