Recognized Beer Judge

I received my test scores from the Beer Judge Certification Program yesterday evening, and my score put me at the Recognized Beer Judge category. I did better in my tasting portion than I did in my writing. I was hoping for a better score, but, during the test, I accidentally completely skipped one of the essay questions, and did a poor job of formulating a Weissbier recipe from scratch, without reference materials.

The next level up is Certified Beer Judge, which will require some more experience judging in sanctioned contests (even if I had scored 100% on the test, I could only be "Recognized" until I racked up some more experience points) and a retake of the written portion of the exam.

Cheers to being a dedicated student!

Funny that this is the title that you will probably blog about the most :) and that the written portion was not the slam dunk since you write so well here.

Congrats!

Congratz Dan!

I really got a chuckle out of the fact that to advance to the next level you need to drink more beer. Hard work, get on it ASAP!

Congratulations! Mr Wort Hog is currently studying for the January sitting in Portland. Got any judging opportunities lined up in your schedule yet?

No judging opportunities yet, but I'll jump on them soon. Of course, I'll judge the KCBiermeisters competition.
