We love to compete. We love to Evaluate Beer.
PrimeTimers compete and win and many competitions around the nation. We do this to get the best feedback on our beers. Any decent competition will offer honest, impartial, and constructive criticism on your beer. We encourage all members to try it out. We even have a monthly style competition for members before every meeting.
Many of our members are also experienced and certified judges. Some are certified through the BJCP, some are Certified Cicerones, and many have well developed and tested palates.
