Best Florida Beer Judging and Stewarding


Best Florida Beer needs our help! The last full weekend of homebrew competition judging is October 7th and 8th. There are 4 sessions that you can choose to sign up and steward or judge. Judges should preferably be BJCP certified but if you are Cicerone Certified, a pro brewer or hold another sensory certification please register to judge as well. You will be paired up with one of the BJCP judges and this will help provide comprehensive and meaningful feedback to our entrants.
