MALT supports the Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP).
BJCP sets the guidelines by which we run the Blue Ridge Brew Off. We encourage club members to study for the BJCP exam and become certified. We also encourage BJCP certified judges to volunteer for BRBO and the CBoY competitions to earn BJCP points. By learning the BJCP style guidelines, one becomes a better informed beer taster. By learning how to brew to the BJCP style guidelines, one develops better control over the many factors that go into brewing and in turn becomes a better brewer!
