The purpose of the training is to give you (or improve your) skills and confidence to assess  beer objectively.  It is aimed at people who wish to join a CAMRA Tasting Panel but is useful for brewery liaison officers and anyone who would like to know more about beer.

After the course you can then join a CAMRA Tasting Panel and:

      Contribute to writing the beer descriptions in CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide

      Contribute to the decision as to which beers go forward to CAMRA’s Champion Beer of Britain Competition

     Improve your ability to assess a beer

At the end of the training you can decide to join a panel by completing 12 tasting cards over 12 weeks and gain a Certificate of Competence, independently accredited by People 1st, who are part of the Hospitality Guild. 

The course is conducted by Master Trainer, Christine Cryne and lasts 5.5 hours

By the end of this session you will be able to:

      Identify the four basic flavours

      State the four key ingredients in beer

      With the help of notes, identify some of the more off usual flavours in beer and where they can come from

      With the use of CAMRA's beer style sheets, identify different beer styles

      Demonstrate this knowledge, by filling in CAMRA’s tasting cards including producing descriptions suitable for CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide.
