Appendix A: Alternate Categorizations

Many have requested alternate categorizations of the BJCP styles since the guidelines may be used for purposes other than homebrew competitions (e.g., education, research, study). To better meet these needs, additional systems have been developed. The alternate categories are listed, along with the current 2015 Styles from the main guidelines.

1. Styles Sorted Using 2008 Categories (Strict)

2. Styles Sorted Using 2008 Guidelines (Modified)

3. Styles Sorted Using Style Family
