Imperial Stout wins at St Kilda BrewShare

Tuesday saw the second installment of BrewShare in St Kilda and 11 homebrewers turned up to show their wares. Most beers were brewed to the style of stouts/porters and all were good enough to attract at least one vote. The $100 Grain and Grape voucher went to Quentin Churches for his "Black Sheep Imperial Stout" which, as the name would suggest, is a Russian Imperial Stout. It was an absolute cracker of a beer and took out the prize ahead of Kevin te Wierik for his Kolsch and Chany Lay for his Chocolate Vanilla Porter.

Thank you to all brewers for their beers and sharing their stories. And a huge thanks again to Grain and Grape for donating the prize. We look forward to the next installment of BrewShare which will be held on Tuesday, August 3rd.

Here's how they work.


  1. Thanks guys, good show. I thoroughly enjoyed tasting the brews and discussing them with the other brewers.

    What's the style for August? I think I need some practice ;)

  2. We will let everyone know v soon.. Suggestions are welcome to be posted here!

  3. Worthogs usually run their Pale Ale Mania competition in August. Might not be a bad idea to match one of the styles there?
