Judging Beer – One Day Class For Members

Being a member has it’s benefits!

One of our primary missions here at Flying Bike is education.  The more educated you become regarding various beer styles and their attributes, the brewing process itself, the best foods to pair with certain beers, etc. the higher you level of appreciation of craft beer becomes.

As our second member homebrew competition approaches, we’re ready to start putting some of that educational philosophy into practice.  All members who signed up as judges for the Stout homebrew competition had the first crack at also signing up for a one day class, designed to teach the basics of the BJCP beer judging process (BJCP = Beer Judge Certification Program - BJCP.org).

Our attendance limit for this class is 28 members, but we have not yet reached that limit.  If you are interested in learning more about the beer judging process, and how to evaluate the aroma, appearance, flavor and mouthfeel of different beer styles using the BJCP judging process, we urge you to sign up and come find out what beer judging is all about. The class is scheduled to be held this coming Sunday, May 6th at 1:00PM in the Museum Bar at Pike Brewing Company in Seattle.  The cost is $10 per person.

This class is for Flying Bike Cooperative Brewery members only, and advance signup is required.  If you are interested in attending this class, please email michaeld@flyingbike.coop and use the subject line: “Beer Judging Class”.  The cutoff for signups is this Wednesday, May 2nd at noon.

If you are interested in attending the class but aren’t yet a Flying Bike Cooperative member, that can easily be remedied.  Visit our home page and join us today!
