What's the status of the Vocabulary project?
The BJCP Vocabulary project is an ongoing effort to provide a clear, usable, consistent set of vocabulary terms to assist judges in describing the beers entered in competitions.
The Vocabulary project committee has been working for well over two years, and has made great progress. Unfortunately, there have also been some bumps along the road to completion.
There was a pilot test website at one time that offered an early version of the vocabulary database, but that site is no longer associated with the BJCP. The prototype application served its purpose, but is not going to be used for the production system.
The committee is currently exploring several avenues to offer a more robust, comprehensive, and correct vocabulary resource for members.
We will provide a full status report at the first opportunity.
Please note that the BJCP is not a sponsor of the former vocabulary site, although you may occasionally find it available. Any information found on the former website cannot be assumed to be correct or representing the position of the BJCP. Judges should not rely on that information for educational or training purposes.
