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.

2018 World Beer Cup and 2018 GABF Judges: Before providing feedback, please review the guideline by downloading a copy of the 2018 BA Beer Style Guidelines. It's very possible that your suggestion or comment has already been included in the most recent style updates. If you find that your comments are still needed, please submit them.

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 2018 for inclusion in the 2019 edition of the BA Beer Style Guidelines.
