About this app

Application for easy viewing of the official Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP) beer/mead/cider style guidelines on your Android phone. Supports both the 2008 and 2015 guidelines (including the Provisional styles).

What's the difference between an American and an English IPA? Interested in a classic example of a Belgian Pale Ale? Want to know official SRM, IBU, OG, FG stats for a Lambic? Now you can use this handy reference to determine the answer according to the Beer Judge Certification Program. One touch search of the BJCP style guidelines provided if you enable the app in the Android searchable items menu.

Use BJCPDroid to study for the Beer Judge Certification Program exam or as an aide during competitions. Not a BJCP member? BJCPDroid makes an excellent companion for debating how closely that expensive bottle of brew you purchased at the pub adheres to the styles that define the world's classic examples. Impress your friends with your depth of knowledge in beer history and adjectives describing flavor/aroma characteristics.

Homebrewers, use the BJCP Beer Style Reference to evaluate your own brews and strive to match some classic examples.

Application provides a contentprovider that allows the BJCP style guidelines to be used by other applications. Developers, contact us if interested in using this functionality.

Be aware that to see the current styles you need to switch to the 2015 guidelines in the menu. The app displays out of date guidelines as default. Search function only searches within the selected guidelines so many styles appear missing unless you happen to notice the poor UX choice and switch. Could be solved with a message to choose preference when first opening app, or making the option to swap easier to find. As-is it's hard to notice even if you have the menu open. Perhaps it could go above the large ad on the main screen?

Sorry, I can't make everyone happy. I implement the preferences of my long time users. Send an email with your suggestions.

The app seems not to have the 2021 guidelines available. Is there any plan to add them? Most/all competitions are using 2021.

There is no plan to add them as the BJCP does not make it easy to do so. Due to this, it is no longer worth my time to maintain this app.
