Episode 001- BJCP Crash Course with Rob Adams

Welcome to the first episode of Cheers Charlotte- a podcast that brings together all things craft beer, homebrew, food, wine and all fine things in Charlotte, NC.

On our inaugural episode, Weezie, Cesar and Ford welcome in studio Rob Adams. Rob is a Nationally Recognized BJCP (Beer Judge Certification Program) judge. He tells us all about tasting beer and how to score it using a BJCP scoring sheet.
