Beer of Q3 2023 – Standard American Beer

For our August meeting brew your best beer from the BJCP Category 1 and we’ll practice our beer judging and pick a best in category. See the style guides from the BJCP below.

1. Standard American Beer

This category describes everyday American beers that have a wide public appeal. Containing both ales and lagers, the beers of this category are not typically complex, and have smooth, accessible flavors. The ales tend to have lager-like qualities, or are designed to appeal to mass-market lager drinkers as crossover beers. Mass-market beers with a more international appeal or origin are described in the International Lager category.
