The Melbourne brewers run Beerfest, one of Australia’s richest annual craft brewing competitions. Transport Hotel sponsor the ‘champion brewer’ prize which sees the winner have one of their craft beer recipes brewed on a commercial system and placed on-tap at Transport Hotel.
Beerfest 2008’s champion brewer prize saw a tie between: Tony Vandenberg and Tony Wheeler.
The ‘Two Tones’ agreed on the style of British Pale Ale and after some discussions with Paul Holgate from Holgate Brewhouse the beer was brewed at the Holgate Brewhouse facility in Woodend, Victoria. The resulting beverage is a golden coloured pale ale with delicate fruity aroma and moderate but lingering bitterness with pineapple and citrus notes
Congrats to all and can't wait to try the stuff!
