Qualifications
The Bluebonnet Brew-off is a sanctioned BJCP and AHA Competition that takes pride in the judging process. All beer judges are welcome. First priority is given to official BJCP Judges and experienced non-BJCP judges.

The Bluebonnet Brew-Off is also an educational organization that conducts formal and informal judge training. We welcome prospective judges with no experience; please identify yourself as a novice judge so that you can be paired with an official BJCP Judge.
