BJCP Study Group


BJCP stands for the Beer Judge Certification Program.  A group of us are beginning to study to become certified beer judges. This is one of the best ways to learn how to judge (and appreciate) beer. You don’t have to have prior experience judging beer to attend a study group session. Most of us are beginners too! Check the calendar for the next BJCP study group meeting.

  1. Download the BJCP Style Guidelines
  2. Check the KGB calendar to see what sections will be covered
  3. Study those sections before the BJCP study group meeting (usually 2-3 styles)
  4. Buy some beers of the style being studied to bring to the study session
  5. Attend the BJCP study group meeting to learn how to assess great beers!
