Media Release

Beervana Media Brew competition winner announced

The winner of the 2014 Beervana Media Brew competition, announced at Beervana at 3:30pm today, is the Hallertau Brewery/Dish Magazine (Victoria Wells) Media Brew with their NZ Wild Ale with Horopito.

Head Judge of the Beervana Media Brew competition, Tracy Banner, who is also Head Brewer and Owner at Sprig and Fern, says the quality of the beer entries this year was outstanding. “It was a sensory explosion, with so many different sensations, whether aroma or flavour, and such a diverse range of styles,” says Banner.

“The winning entry by Hallertau Brewery and Victoria Wells, which is described as having aromas of fresh silage, a little creamy, and a lot tart, was just absolutely sensational,” says Banner. “When you know you’ve got good beer there’s often silence amongst the judges as it’s such a good beer. When everyone tasted this one, they just went ‘wow’.”

Three additional awards were also announced:

Runner up overall: Liberty Brewing Co. /Metro Magazine (Simon Farrell- Green)
Beer: J.A.F.A Beer

Best Idea Award: Fork Brewing /Lonely Planet (Brett Atkinson)
Beer: Farmhouse du Fru Ju


Most Innovative and Creative Award: ParrotDog/Fishhead Magazine (Hadyn Green)
Beer: Dog Bone
