So the ACT Amateur Brewing Championships was kind of like this but with more beards and a lot less Nicole Arbour.
The good news for Hen & Hound was we scooped three medals – all bronze unfortunately but we were still happy given the level of competition (350 entries).
So give us a call if you are after some beer with medals. Or if you know Nicole Arbour. Or really just if you are bored. I need to find out if my phone still works.
We entered our first competition last weekend at the Braidwood Show and came away with a first in the Lager / Pilsener class with ‘trying to get back to the start cerveza‘ and a second place in the Pale Ale / Bitter class with ‘tell me how it ends american pale ale‘.
The cerveza won with a score of 43/50 with the judges comments: “Excellent example. Well made. No faults showing through. Faults have nowhere to hide in such a beer.”
This meant that in the overall competition we came third being beaten by a 44 and 45. Great validation and hopefully more to come.
Based on an A4 sheet of paper stuck in what was/is a dilapidated local suburban shop the answer would appear to be yes.
‘Two before Ten’ has bought out the whole place and is turning it into a bakery/cafe/ restaurant/coffee roasters/bar and something about a library and community space.
