6) SUMMER BEER
Enter the Beerfest Summer Slam and compete for some great prizes
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.
