Can you believe it, we’re heading into our fifth year of competition. It’s that time of year when you get the Autumn feeling setting in and you know it’s time to dust off the hydrometer and make a trip down to Wilko’s (or browse any other reputable home brew suppliers) to stock up on brewing kit.
Last year saw the greatest turn out by far in the history of the competition and with this being a landmark 5th year, we’re hoping to see even more top brews entered. Last year’s winner, Malaccan Pirate, was a storming success selling well in many Portsmouth pubs and it was also one of the first beers to sell out at the Portsmouth Beer Festival back in May.
My hops are harvested and i’m ready to get cracking. We have yet to confirm a date for the judging evening but we will aim to announce a set date for February 2015 very soon so be sure to keep an eye out.
In the mean time happy brewing!
