"Preparing for a homebrew competition helps you make better beer because it causes you to focus on what the judges will evaluate. So you have to optimize your brewing for the best consumer experience. If you can present a beer that will wow the judges, you can certainly have good beer on tap all the time at home."
"I really appreciate a good American Pale Ale. I think it's a good mark as to the brewer's skill since it's so straight-forward. It also can have a wide range of interpretations, so it does allow for some brewer creativity."
"I'm a Grand Master beer judge and the current president of the BJCP (www.bjcp.org). I firmly believe that becoming a beer judge is the single best thing a brewer can do to improve their beer since it helps you understand and evaluate your own products. It causes you to think about how the ingredients and processes result in what's in your glass, and to diagnose potential problems."
