In an effort to further our homebrewing and beer knowledge, the Education Committee has put together the following schedule to help members understand the different BJCP beer styles. At each monthly meeting we will go over the BJCP Style Guideline listed below in addition to tasting a few commercial examples of that style.

In addition, we will have Educational Activities where we’ll discuss homebrewing equipment, techniques, ingredients, etc.
