If you’re interested in becoming a BJCP certified judge, we’re looking at organising a new study group for this year. The study group meets once a month, and the purpose is to work through the BJCP styles, tasting examples of each style and discussing and scoring the beers tasted. The goal is to get your judging skills to the point that you can sit the tasting exam and pass. There is also a beer and brewing knowledge aspect, which is more about personal reading. There’s a lot of written material available form a number of sources specifically aimed at helping you pass the online entrance exam.
There is a tasting exam scheduled for April. If you missed out on the last one, or want to try for a higher score, aim for this.
Anyone interested in the study group or exam should contact Gary on 0417893321
