THE GUILD

The National Guild of Wine and Beer Judges is the body responsible for setting and maintaining the standards for judging at shows throughout England and Wales. It was founded in 1963 by a group of people who had become concerned at the variability of judging standards at various shows.

The Guild holds an annual conference for Judges, which provides a useful forum for discussion and seeks to maintain standards by holding open judging for entries in a wine and beer competition staged at the conference.

The guild also has a newsletter to keep judges informed and maintains the judges handbook. This is the judges bible and defines the standard which all judges apply at competitions.
