Event Grading

We grade our tastings to cater for three different groups: Explorers, Connoisseurs and Experts. However, you do not need to be limited by our gradings, if you like the sound of a tasting event go for it!

You are a beer explorer...

You are just setting out on your discovery of beer. You have tried a few and you know there is much more to find out about beer. You would like to experiment but you need help in picking some new beers from the thousands available on draught, in bottle and in can. Trying new beers is fun.

You are a beer connoisseur...

You are a bit further down the track. You've got a good range of beers that you like and you know quite a bit about beers, brewing and brewers. You like to try something new and share your opinions with other like-minded people. Life without beer would be much less fun.

You are a beer expert...

You have tried many beers and you have found ones that you like and others that you don't get on with. Variety is the spice of life after all. You have an encyclopaedic knowledge of beer and your bookshelf groans under the weight of books and articles about beer. You enjoy a session with your friends and you are always glad to try something new. You will happily share your knowledge with people who are keen to hear what you know. Your Mastermind category would be Beer Glorious Beer.
