Home Brewers under the Microscope!

At the 2015 Beer Awards held during Reef Feast at Palm Cove we will be featuring the skills of the Home Brewer. The Home Brewer can now experiment with many grains and hops both locally sourced and imported. Other home brewers have a growing selection of concentrates also local and from around the world. The results are often hard to believe they are actually ‘home made’.

The awards this year will begin with judging of the best home brewers can offer with some tasting for the observers as well. While we will stick to some well liked beer types, we will also judge specialty beers that can cover many flavours.

Following the Home Brewing we will have the Big Brand Judging. Several very well known Craft Brews will be judged against their market competitors. There are sure to be some surprises in the results!

Come along and see if you agree with the judges.

During the lunch break there will be a presentation on ‘How to Judge Beer’, including what the judges are evaluating such as aroma, appearance in the glass, taste, mouth feel, residual taste and sweetness or bitterness.

The competition is always fun but the aim of the event is education and improvement of Home Brewing techniques.
