    The 2017 Beerfest by Melbourne Brewers has again been amped up. The homebrew competition will be bigger with Farmhouse ale and wild beers being added. The location has changed giving us onsite (and cheap) accommodation. It will be held on 24-25th February 2017. More information will be published soon. Until then, check out the list of beer categories and more information at http://www.melbournebrewers.org/

    Get brewing!!!

    BEERFEST is only a few months away and we need the great people, wonderful people, truly the best people to put their hand up to help Judge and/or Steward.

    The competition will be held at Campaspe Downs, near Kyneton.

    The dates will be: Friday 24 Feb - Sat 25 Feb 2017

    We will be running three sessions, Friday Night, Saturday Morning and Saturday Afternoon.

    These events do not run without volunteers, and all levels of skill and experience are encouraged to participate. We do NOT insist on any particular qualification to judge beer - if you are a novice we will pair you with experienced judges.

    So here's what you need to do, in three simple steps:

    1) Decide to particpate! Yes, we need you to make BEERFEST great again.

    2) Go and beg permission from the family, and add the date to your calendar.

    3) Fill out the form located here --> LINK <-- and we will get back to you!

    Beerfest is a registered BJCP event.

    meals are provided for the people assisting on the flight, stewards and judges are catered for if they are assisting.

    Naturally if you arent doing anything on a flight you can still dine, it's just a nominal fee, cant remember the amount though.

    I believe it's (Friday Dinner?) Saturday Lunch and Dinner and Sunday Breakfast is generally lots of Bacon and eggs

    I am hoping to come and help steward on a day. Just need to confirm with the boss and check the calendar.

    Cannot commit until then.

    Is this suitable for newbie judges? I'm keen to give it a go as a way of developing and identifying different tastes, flavours etc. If they really do pair you up with experienced judges and don't mind that your a newbie then I'll sign up.
