Brewfest 2012

The Tradition Continues

What is Brewfest?

Brewfest is an annual day of celebration for mankind’s greatest achievement... Beer!!

It is a homebrew competition at heart, showcasing the triumphs of the humble homebrewer. Brewers from all over Melbourne rush to enter in the event to have their passion reviewed, critiqued, laughed at and judged harshly. They put their heart and soul into making what they think are stand out examples of Lagers, Pale Ales and Dark Ales. We also have ‘Brewer’s Choice’ so you won’t know exactly what you’re going to get until you get there.

Friends of brewers know exactly how much effort goes into these brews and know how grating it is to constantly hear how great the beers are. That’s where you come in. We need you to join us on the day and become official taste testers, our esteemed judges, the people who could boost or destroy a brewer’s delicate ego. We need you to taste, review, critique, laugh at and judge the brews submitted to Brewfest. Your careful analysis using our state of the art scoring system, will determine a brewer’s right to scream to the heavens, “This is great beer!”

On the day you can expect to taste up to 20 different homebrews across different styles of beer as well as gourmet BBQ food and a great homegrown atmosphere with plenty of people who share your love of beer (or designated driving).

Come taste and compare beers from carefully selected home breweries from all around the Greater Melbourne Area. Using our specially designed scoring system, you taste, you vote, you decide.
