From the BJCP website:

The job of a steward is to help the judges. While the head judge is the person responsible for all activities for the judging flight, the steward assists as needed. Whenever possible, one steward should be assigned to each flight. Most flights have between two and four judges assigned; three is considered optimal. Stewards ensure that the judges have all of the judging materials they need including judging forms, pencils, cups, bottle openers, water, and bread or crackers. Stewards often bring the competition entries to the judges in the order specified by the head judge. Stewards should NOT open the competition entries unless specifically directed by the head judge. During the judging, stewards double-check all of the competition forms, including the cover sheets, to be sure they have been properly completed and that the math has been done correctly. Stewards may calculate the final assigned score if the head judge directs the steward to use a simple average score (i.e., arithmetic mean). Judging is an intensive process, and the stewards play a key role in making sure all goes smoothly. Serving as a steward is an excellent means of learning about beer evaluation and is usually the first step in becoming a beer judge.

Basically they set up the table for the judges, bring the beers out to the judges and check the judges math. The fun thing about being a steward is all the free beer. The brewers cup is like a two day long party for the stewards.

I'm in for all sessions. We put the bug in the ear for them to open up the bunkhouse. Are we going to take them up on it?

Where is her sense of ADVENTURE?!?

Now I'm thinking $30/night is a little steep for a bunkhouse...

Got my 3 entries in. It kind of sucks that they aren't using the 2015 BJCP guidelines; I had to enter my Kentucky Common as a 23 Specialty. Good Luck everyone!!
