Podcast: Be Judgemental, It’s a Good Thing!

One of the old-style scoresheets from BJCP competitions.

On this information-packed episode of the Ale Evangelist Show, the Scotsman and Drew sit down with Peter Munoz, certified beer judge, to talk about what beer judging is all about.

The guys talked about off flavors, beer scoring, and what judges are looking for in competitions. It might surprise you to know that beer judges aren’t judging based on whether or not they liked the beer, and that’s just the beginning of this dense subject.

Peter scores the Scotsman’s latest beer, and they talk about what could have made it better, and the guys all try a few of Peter’s beers.

Peter turned on the informational fire hose on this episode of the Ale Evangelist Show. You don’t want to miss it.
