The first ever Beer Competition for Australian brewed beers is being hosted by Queensland Food and Wine at the RNA Showgrounds on 21st October. As we are fast approaching summer and the peak beer drinking season this is a great opportunity for brewers to showcase their products.
The diversity of beers, flavours and their ability to match with a wide range of foods is still being discovered by the consumer. As part of the show the drinking public will be able to attend a masterclass and sample the best of what is on offer.
A team of judges will be awarding gold, silver and bronze medals. There will be eight categories judged on appearance, aroma and flavour
- Golden Lager – Continental / Pilsner Style
- Golden Lagers – Australian Style
- Dark Lagers
- Pale / Golden Ales
- Amber and Dark Ales
- Stouts and Porters
- Wheat beers
- Strong Beers – min alcohol content 6%v/v
This is a great opportunity for smaller brewers to present their products to judges and to stimulate the beer drinking public to what is new in the industry.
