New Style Guidelines Released

The long-awaited 2015 BJCP Style Guidelines are now complete, and have been released for use. There are now separate documents for Beer, Mead, and Cider styles, which allows them to be updated in the future on different schedules. The documents are currently available in PDF and Word formats from the Style Center. The 2008 guidelines are still available for use.

BJCP exams will begin to use the 2015 guidelines on exams given in November 2015. More information will be posted as it is available. Tests prior to 1 November 2015 will be based on the 2008 guidelines.

BJCP-sanctioned competitions may use either set of guidelines. Check with individual competition organizers for specific rules. The BJCP expects that by the end of 2015, all competitions will use the 2015 guidelines.

Note that most style-related documents and information posted refers to the 2008 guidelines. As additional formats and translations are available, we will note that in the Style Center.

We need HELP!

The First round of the National Homebrew Competition is coming to Seattle on April 2, 2011!
We are expecting a record number of entries and are therefore looking for as many judges and stewards as
we can get to help with the 1st round judging of this competition. You don't
have to be a BJCP judge to participate. You just need a decent beer palate and be
reasonably familiar with different styles of Craft Beer. Don't worry, all
novice judges will be paired up with at least one experienced BJCP judge, so you
won't be left hanging. We are seeking stewards as well, so you can help out that way too.

You can help by pre-registering here:

Steve Antoch
BJCP Master Judge
NHC NW Region 1st Round Judge Director

Side Note -- BJCP National Judge Mark Tanner and I will be presenting a short Beer
Judging seminar at the Cascade Brewer's Guild ExBEERience event which will be held at Redhook in
Woodinvlle on March 12. It's a great chance to get out and sample some great Craft Beer and Homebrew
and take in a small class on beer judging. I hope that all prospective Novice judges can stop by and take part.
