Best in Competition Prize Details

The prize on offer is the chance to brew up to 1,000L of your beer at King Street Brew House.  We will try to source the ingredients required, but due to the limited availability of certain hops (Simcoe, Citra, Galaxy etc), malts and yeasts (dried yeast is preferred), some substitutions may have to be made. The same applies for the brewing process as we are unable to carry out step mashing and decoction mashing. We also reserve the right to adjust the beer recipe to ensure it is economically viable for us to brew it.

The Brew day will be arranged with the winner after the award ceremony. We are quite flexible on beer naming, but we do reserve the right to rename the beer to ensure it is in keeping with our branding. The same applies for pump clip art work.

The winner will also receive a pump clip for their brew.

Please note that the winning beer brewed will be the sole property of King Street Brew House, City Pub Company West (Ltd) and the competition winner relinquishes any rights to the product, product sales and branding. The competition winner will be required to sign a declaration prior to the beer being brewed.
