Beer Judge Certification Program

The club is affiliated with the national Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP) and offers a series of technical classes at least once each year (generally starting in October). These classes are designed to educate members in a wide variety of beer styles (there are over 60) and the techniques required to enhance beer appreciation. The 20+ hours of class time culminate in a three hour exam. Those passing receive national recognition and certification as Beer Judges.

Our regular meetings are on the third Tuesday of each month starting in September and ending in May (summers are reserved for fishing/camping) at the Snowgoose starting at 7:00 PM. You can also contact one of the officers by phone or send us email for more information.  You can also checkout our Facebook page at for upcoming events throughout the year (even during the summer months).
