I wanted to get some ideas and/or examples from the forums on how your clubs handle structured homebrew feedback.
The current setup at our club meeting is, all of the beers get opened, put on a table in the middle of the room and you help yourself throughout the evening. If the brewer is nearby and sees you have their beer in your glass they may approach you for some verbal feedback, that's about the extent of it.
I've had interest from numerous club members who are seeking for more formal, critical feedback for their homebrew rather than just a bottle share, which is essentially is what we have now and not the most conducive format for quality feedback.
In terms of our setup, we have 2-hour club meeting once a month and I think the more formal feedback will need to be weaved into the program of our monthly meeting (as opposed setting up a separate evaluation/feedback meeting).
Our clubs meetings generally have a mix of casual and enthusiast/veteran competition brewers, so my goal is to create an optional segment within our regular meeting which allows those who want to give and receive critical feedback the opportunity to do so whilst the casual crowd can continue with the current bottle share format.
Any ideas or examples on how other clubs are handling more formal feedback would be greatly appreciated.
