2014 Beer Style Guidelines Update Survey

1. Information About You

 

Thank you for providing feedback on the Brewers Association Beer Style Guidelines. The style guidelines evolve over time to reflect market trends, more comprehensive analysis, and greater understanding of how beer is made and how it tastes, smells and appears. Over 90% of suggested changes are incorporated each year; your input is valuable.

To provide feedback, you may find it very helpful to download a copy of the current BA Beer Style Guidelines, which can be found by clicking here

(2014 GABF judges: to provide 2014 competition feedback that would normally be found on a "pink sheet", please use the judge feedback survey link instead by clicking here)

You can provide as much or as little feedback about an individual style as you wish. Comments regarding the grouping or categorization of beer styles within competitions are welcome, and will be treated separately. Only fill out the areas that you propose to update. These suggestions are pooled and reviewed in October, and the guidelines are then edited in November and December of each year by Charlie Papazian. A new edition of the BA Style Guidelines is then published each year in January or February. Comments received in this survey will be reviewed in fall of 2014 for inclusion in the 2015 edition of the BA Beer Style Guidelines.
