What is BJCP?
The Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP) is a non-profit organization formed in 1985 "to promote beer literacy and the appreciation of real beer, and to recognize beer tasting and evaluation skills." It has been described in the press as a "hands-on study program designed to teach aspiring beer enthusiasts about the essence of any kind of beer". The BJCP certifies and ranks beer judges through an examination and monitoring process.
Step 1 - learn the beer style basics and take the online exam
Step 2 - practice writing tasting notes, and take the judging exam
Step 3 - gain experience points by judging real BJCP-sanctioned competitions
Step 4 - give back to the community by teaching, proctoring exams, or organizing competitions
