BrewNZ 2004 New Zealand Beer Awards Results

A panel of nine expert judges has spent the last three days blind tasting in excess of 200 New Zealand and international beers to find the best brews for 2004.

From the classic draught and lager beers, to wheat beers, dark, amber and pale ales, the judges were looking for aroma, texture, taste and fidelity to style in each of 15 distinct categories.

Chief judge, David Logsdon from the USA, commented that there were some outstanding beers tasted at this year's New Zealand Beer Awards judging.

"The beers I have tasted over the last few days were of an extremely high standard. The New Zealand beer industry has come of age with world class brewing and the availability of increasingly sophisticated and well brewed beers to suit a range of palates."

The Class Winners in each of the 15 categories for the BrewNZ 2004 New Zealand Beer Awards announced at tonight's New Zealand Beer Awards Dinner at the James Cook Grand Chancellor Hotel in Wellington are:

Class 1: New Zealand Draught (Double Brown, DB Mainland)
