BRBO Volunteers

We are always looking for volunteers to help produce this fun, exciting, educational event. Experienced judges and stewards are always needed but even if you have no previous experience at a beer judging competition, your volunteered time is welcomed and greatly appreciated.

BJCP Judge:

Are you a BJCP judge? We want you to come to Asheville for the Blue Ridge Brew Off! We are always looking for qualified judges to help provide educational feedback to our nearly 500 entrants every year. Sign up online today at the competition registration website and register as a judge. Special note for Judges, please let us know if you can serve on Saturday morning, Saturday afternoon and Thursday evening. Have any questions about accommodations, competition scheduling or about Asheville in general, please contact our Judge Coordinator, Adam Reinke at reinkster@hotmail.com.

Beer Steward:

Have you been a beer steward at a competition before? Beer stewards are needed to make the BRBO a success and your assistance is greatly appreciated. Sign up online today at the competition registration website and register as a steward. Special note for Stewards, please let us know if you can serve on Saturday a.m., Saturday p.m., and perhaps Thursday evening. Have any questions about accommodations, competition scheduling or about Asheville in general, please contact our Head Steward coordinator, Faith Faw at faith_hba@hotmail.com.

New Volunteer:

Never volunteered at a beer judging competition before? Don’t even know that much about beer but want to learn more? You can help at the BRBO and you will have fun with us at this exciting and educational event. Have any questions about accommodations, competition scheduling or about Asheville in general, please contact our BRBO Organizer, Mark Stoffan at mstoffan@gmail.com.
