Session beer -- the staple of the beer world -- now has its own homebrew competition. The North Texas Home Brewers Association presents the 2016 Limbo Challenge, to recognize the best of the refreshing low-gravity beers perfected by homebrewers across the nation.

The Limbo Challenge rewards nuance and skill in brewing the beers we drink and drink and drink. You brew it - you quaff it - you love it. Now enter it!

Entry categories are limited to lower alcohol beers with starting gravities of about 1.050 or below.

The Limbo Challenge is an AHA and BJCP sanctioned competition.

The Limbo Challenge is one of the ten competitions on The Lonestar Circuit.
