Judgement day came, and Pretoria came out tops!

The Copperlake sponsored annual “Beer Wars” tasting day was held on Sunday 17 September at Copperlake.

Essentially, each chapter was invited to brew at Copperlake (all ingredients sponsored) and to submit an entry. Last year the theme was “Dark and Strong”. This year the theme was German “Bier-Fest.”

The entries were as follows:

Pretoria – German Pils
Copperlake – European Red Lager
Joburg – Gose
Harties – Weizz-Azz Bock
East Rand – Roggenbier 

A good crowd came to support their chapters and have a taste of each of the beers. Notably, Harties chapter took up half the room :-p

Pretoria took the top honours, followed by Copperlake. The People’s choice award went to Hartbeespoort for their Weizz-Azz Bock. Well done to everyone who participated!

Thanks to the judges (Danie, Lee & Brad) for taking time to evaluate the beers so carefully, and to all the members and guests that enjoyed a few beers through the day.

A massive thanks to Brendan, Adam and David from the Copperlake team for organising and sponsoring. Cheers!
