SUMMER BEER

Enter the Beerfest Summer Slam and compete to be crowned Victoria's greatest homebrewer

Entrants will have their brewing mettle tested as beers go head to head in a single-elimination tournament.

What is a summer beer?  That is for you to decide and the judges to determine.  Brew the beer that you would want to drink on a scorching summer day.  No styles. No Rules. Just enter your best summer beer and the judges will pick their favorite.

How to enter:  you need to enter 2 x 750ml bottles to enter this part of the competition. 

We will randomly assign beers for the comp and they will be judged head to head over several rounds to determine  whose  beer reigns supreme

Beers will not be judged to BJCP styles, instead, a panel of judges will vote on their favorite in each round until an ultimate champion is found.
