The BJCP

I can’t believe it wasn’t until just the other day that I’d heard of the BJCP – the Beer Judge Certification Program. The Beer Judge Certification Program states their purpose very clearly on their site: ” The purpose of the Beer Judge Certification Program is to promote beer literacy and the appreciation of real beer, and to recognize beer tasting and evaluation skills. Founded in 1985, we certify and rank beer judges through an examination and monitoring process.”
While I’m not quite ready to become a certified beer judge, I do find their site incredibly informative and helpful! They have a great style-guide that explains what one should look for in aroma, flavor, appearance, everything! Make sure you check out their site. Maybe you’ll be a judge someday yourself!

    Hey, I judge beer nightly! And I get to sit in my duplex and watch The Rockford Files while doing it!
