Judge Training Status

We take judging seriously.

In order to advance as brewers, we need a fair and consistent yardstick to measure our efforts against, and we need feedback and constructive comments on how our efforts compare to the ideal.

To that end, the Guild's Charter charges us to provide training to create a corps of certified judges for Guild and other tasting events. Our contests and rank advancement tastings are judged by trained tasters who spend a considerable amount of time taking classes and honing their skills along side our Senior Judges.

Some of our judges also judge for the Los Angeles, Riverside, and Orange County Fairs, as well as other non-SCA tasting activities. In the SCA you can see them at work at Great Western War (where the Guild sponsors a multi-kingdom contest), Potrero War, Highland War, King's Hunt, and other local brewing contests.

Judging may sound like a lot of fun (and it is), but it's also a lot of work. Getting it right is not a trivial endeavor, but our judges take the time to do it right and do their best to provide useful and helpful comments and critiques.

If you have questions about Guild trained and certified judges, or would like to become a Guild judge (or just take the training classes to help improve your own brewing), check out the how To Be a Brewing Judge page or contact the Judge Coordinator.
