In preparation for the October 23rd BJCP exam, there will be a BJCP study group in Lakewood, WA at the Beer Essentials (there will be another study group in Lynnwood, check the WAHA site for more details).  We’ll be discussing the exam, the various questions, covering faults, and tasting through many of the BJCP styles.  The class will have 8 sessions on Tuesday from 7:00-~9:00 starting on August 17th.
