Send a beer any time between now and the cut off. I'll be using a standardised scoring system across all the beers - so the sooner they start ariving the better (for me).
Sounds like a plan! Do we get extra points for adhering to the Reinheitsgebot? hehe
Just a friendly reminder not to leave your entries to the last minute - it's a lot for one man to get through!
Thanks to all who have sent their beers already.
Last week people - The interest this year has been awesome... good to see so much good beer.
how many entries did you receive brutha?
and the winner is..... (drum roll)
OK... sorry about the delay.
There were a lot more entries than last year... and I guess 5 days to get through all those beers was wishfull thinking!
So lets just cut to the chase...
The winner is Tony Faulkner with his Belgian Brown beast. It was a really well balanced beer with beautiful malt character. The Belgian fruityness on the nose was so clean and well balanced. The alcohol was completely hidden too which was mean, given that I though it was 5% but it was more closer to 8. Needless to say that after 750mls of it, I was well on my way.
Second (albeit no prize for second) goes to Matthew Vernon with his Imperial Porter / Hoppy Black Beer.
Third Equal goes to Dave Wood and Shiggy Takagi with their Oat IPA and Black IPA respectively.
Thanks to everyone who took part. I will definately hold another one of these in the future.
Best regards, Joe.
Congrats to Tony! I hope to be able to get hold of some of the brew down here in Chch!
I must be more organised and enter this comp next year!
Cheers Joe, i wish I had some of that beer left.....
