White Rock Hotel, Hastings
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. After the course 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.
If you are unsure you want to make the commitment to join a panel, try the Beer Appreciation Course first. These are planned for April and September in London. This will give you the basics.
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.
