    Following a 21 hour day yesterday, the jury is in on all results from the Relish Fraser Coast Home Brew Competition.
    It’s been a long week, with arrangements coming together following 3 months of planning and untold hours getting everything together. The job has been a lot easier with fantastic work & support from Karen who’s been slaving away endlessly to help it all come together.
    Special thanks to the members of Gympie Amateur Brewer’s (Michael, Joel, Bruce and John), Good Beer Guys, Gympie and members of the Fraser Coast Bayside Brewers (Roger, Nick, Simon, Matt, Aaron, Luke, Mal, Greg and others) who are always there to lend a hand to bring it all together.
    The main purpose of running such brewing competitions is to provide a mechanism of feedback for brewers seeking excellence in the crafting of fine beer at home. Some of these entries are approaching world standard with many scoring as “excellent”.
    Of note, we’re seeing more and more brewers seeking to craft beers at home using raw materials, grain, hops etc, rather than commercially prepared “kit” style beers. The blind judging and scores reflect this trend.

    Briefly, Results as follows:

    CHAMPION BEER OF THE SHOW: Following blind judging, we had a tie between an American IPA brewed by Simon Tew and a Scottish Dark Ale brewed by Bruce Powell. It was decided to shoot it out and at the end we could not reach agreement, by using a new panel of 3, further, a fourth judge was entered into deliberations. Final decision was that 2 beers brewed with excellence at such a high level, we would award both brewers…….so, congratulations to both Simon Tew and Bruce Powell. What a pair of outstanding beers.

    Feedback sheets are available this week.
