Title: Questions on feedback and competition
Post by: klickitat jim on June 02, 2013, 04:52:25 AM
I had these in another post, maybe I worded things poorly. Looking for some info.

Is there a certified or higher judge who would be interested in tasting a couple of my beers and provide me with good objective feedback? It would be this early fall. I am not trying to avoid expense of a competition, but trying to get educated experienced feedback.

Best bet would probably be to join a club and bring your beer to meeting for evaluation. But if you're out in Klickitat county, not too much out there eh? Maybe in Hood River or The Dalles?

Sure.  Let me know when you're ready.  At least you won't have to ship too far.

There was/is a BJCP judge in the Midwest who was offering these services. Can't remember his name/website but I think he is a National level judge. Basically he charged 7 bucks a beer to critique them and email back the scoresheets.  I never did it but I thought it was a great service to offer.  Comps are great but it seems like the feedback and/or quality of the judging can be so variable that you never quite know what you are going to get.
