Without a doubt Australian’s have a great love for beer, and after a hard day there is nothing like sitting back and quenching your thirst with a much deserved cold beer .
From June 13 to June 18 finding that perfect beer with a kick will become a whole lot easier as the 2011 annual Perth Royal Beer Show starts up once again.
The competition held by the Royal Agricultural Society of WA’s at Claremont Showground is set to be fiercely contested as local brewers go head to head with those from interstate. A total of fifteen trophies is set to be awarded to commercial and amateur beers in categories including best ale, lager, stout draft, wheat beer and reduced alcohol.
Brewing manager of acclaimed Swan Brewery, Sean Symons will be one of the 20 credited judges who will be tantalising their taste buds in a bid to find the most favourable and promising beers. A total of 20 points can be awarded to each beer, taking into account factors such as flavour, aroma, colour, technical quality and if its style is appropriate for its class genre.
Jayne Lewis one of the interstate judges has proven to be no stranger to Western Australian beers having worked with Little Creatures and Matilda Bay as well as the Victorian-based Mountain Goat Brewery.
Jayne believes there are a lot of amazing beers coming out of the west. “I am really excited to get home and judge at the Show for the first time. I’m also looking forward to drinking many of these beers at their source!” she said.
Like many of us if you have a love for beer tasting come take a ‘tipple’ in the quest to find the perfect award-winning beers.
