• After the BJCP became independent in 1995, who actually ran the organization?

    Since the BJCP is a 100% volunteer, non-profit organization, the individuals who donate their time and talents to running it are truly our friends. Altruistic and public-spirited people like these are our greatest resource, and we encourage you to buy them a beer if you ever have the opportunity.*
