Taphouse BrewShare - Information for Attendees

Here's some more information for BrewShare attendees next week..


How much beer do I need to bring? At least 1.5 – 2 litres in bottles, kegs etc. You need to be able to refrigerate and dispense the beer yourself.

All home brewers must fill in this online form at least two days prior to the BrewShare. These Fact Sheets will be printed and handed out to all attendees.

The running order for the night:

Greeting & Introduction. All attendees will be provided with a running sheet of all beers (max 24 beers)

7.15pm – 9pm
Tasting: 3 beers at a time at 10 minute intervals.

90-100mls of each beer is to be dispensed by the home brewer into an official tasting glass (one per person for the night). The Fact Sheets to be handed out with beers.

If they wish, home brewers will have 60 seconds to explain their beer!

9pm – 9.15pm
General discussion and Q&A about all beers.

Secret Ballot for Public Choice Beer of the Night using 3-2-1 system (1 being your favourite). Home brewers cannot vote for their own beer. All votes from attendees make up 70% of the final score. 30% of Taphouse staff (and any other special guests) will make up the final portion.

Formalities end – social chat and drinks


Taphouse BrewShare is about homebrewers bringing their own home brew to barter and socialise with their peers!

There is a $100 Grain & Grape/Dave’s Home Brew voucher for People’s Choice Beer.

For this first event, home brewers can brew whatever they like.

ST KILDA: Tuesday Nov 24th from 7pm & free
DARLO: Thursday Nov 26th from 7pm & free - BOOKED OUT

Despite being free, you MUST book by emailing stkilda@thelocal.com.au.


  1. Just submitted my form, looking forward to a night of sampling!

  2. I guess I missed out on the sydney event. Is the night still open for attendance, or registered brewers only?

  3. Hey Dan,

    We haven't come up with a way that punters without homebrew can come and sample.

    We'll try and come up with something for the next BrewShare.

    Next week's session, however, is full due to the limited space we have for the function.

  4. hopefully next time I'll have my brew in!
