The 2015 BJCP Style Guidelines are a major revision from the 2008 edition. The goals of the new edition are to better address world beer styles as found in their local markets, keep pace with emerging craft beer market trends, describe historical beers now finding a following, better describe the sensory characteristics of modern brewing ingredients, take advantage of new research and references, and help competition organizers better manage the complexity of their events.

On multiple occasions I've run across places where this app has incomplete or inaccurate information for 2015 guidelines. Some of the normal functionality is also awkward and it has fewer features than other available style guideline apps.
Need to ADD SEARCH, personal BEER RATINGS, FAVORITES, a place for notes. Make this 'Beer Ticking' friendly. Otherwise great app. Lack of options, loses appeal after a bit of use
I hate to pick nits for a free app. It's useful, but there are some missing stats in a few places (Cream Ale being one example).
As far as I can tell it's the guidelines in an app made for cell phone and tab. I didn't see the intro or maybe I missed it, oh well has the good stuff.
Works well. My only real complaint is that British golden ale is missing vital statistics (IBU and SRM)
Useless without a search
It's great to find information about different styles of beer
Good information but really, really bland presentation - a very "Plain Jane" style app that doesn't look like it but actually has a lot of useful information. Also should default to the index (instead of just to first style) which would make it more convenient to use. And how about adding a search function?
Very useful, great app! Would love the ability to search.
It's great that this is so lightweight and simple, but condensed styles with dropdowns by category and/or a search function would make this much, much easier to use.
Great, except that there is no longer a search function. The previous android bjcp app had one.
It was saying that my device wasn't compatible. An email later and Denis had it fixed.
A must have!

Need a text search function...
Like its predecessor, this app just works! All the info a BJCP needs.
simple and functional..like a great app should be!
2015 BJCP Guidelines are published. This app has it; other BJCP apps are running 2008, waiting for html feeds. Thank you for taking the lead!
