This calendar shows exams registered with the BJCP. All exams are beer judging (tasting) exams unless otherwise noted. Exam sites per month and the number of examinees per site are limited. When the limit of sites is reached, the month will be marked accordingly.

Examinees: If you wish to sign up to take an exam, contact the exam administrator for your preferred location; do not contact the BJCP directly. The BJCP has no idea if there are exam seats available. CONTACT THE EXAM ADMINISTRATOR. The BJCP does not register individual examinees.

Exam administrators: To request an exam site at least four months in the future, please complete the Exam Data Admin Form and email it to calendar@bjcp.org. More information on scheduling exams is available HERE. We do not accept requests for exams held more than 24 months in the future.
