Better Beer Scores Has Closed Its Doors for The Indefinite Future

Thank You to All of Our Alumni and Supporters

It's with mixed emotions that we announce that Better Beer Scores will be on an indefinite hiatus through 2018.

We thank all of our alumni and supporters for their patronage over our six-and-a-half-year history. Keep an eye out for us in the future!

It's our sincerest hope that our little niche of beer education has helped each and every one of our students realize their goals of becoming BJCP-certified beer judges. Our website and alumni access to past recorded sessions have been taken offline as of August 8, 2016.

Our doors are closing for now, but others are opening — we are very excited to announce that Charlie has become a professional brewer! He is now co-owner and brewmaster for Bruz Beers in Denver, Colorado. And since its opening in July 2016, Charlie and his partner Ryan have created a lot of buzz with not one, but two articles in the Denver Post, features in 5280 Magazine and Westword, and positive press in 303 Magazine, the Denver Business Journal, Denverite, and the Rocky Mountain Brewing News.

If you're in Denver for any reason, be sure to stop in at Bruz to have a delicious, meticulously made Belgian style beer and say hello!

Thanks for a great run and we hope to see you down the road!
