Beer Judge Certification Program


We hold two competition events per year, one in spring and one in fall.


You Don’t Have to be an Expert to Participate

If you have a passion for beer you can judge with us, even if you’re not a BJCP judge. You will be paired up and guided by an experienced judge. It is a great way to practice your palate to become a BJCP judge.

To keep everything fair you will not be judging in a category that you’ve entered your own beer into.


Judging Materials and Classification

Where to find

We have a couple of BJCP manuals that we pass around on the day of competition.

But if you would like to refference them yourself you can find the complete listings on the BJCP website.

There are also apps that are convenient to use during the competition such as this one for iOS devices and this one for Android devices.


Special attention should be paid to entering your beer into the right category. There are many categories of beer and checking your beer against similar categories to check that they are properly category can yield good results on the day of competition.
