It’s that time of year again! Applications are open to stall holders for the 2015 Dunedin Craft Beer and Food Festival!
There are a few changes this year. Firstly, the Festival is now on the 7th of November, allowing for (hopefully) the warmer weather to shine through. PLUS, we are expanding onto the entire pitch at the Forsyth Barr Stadium.
Based on the very high demand for spots this year, applications are open for just a few short weeks, closing on the 3rd of July. If you are interested, we recommend to locking yours in now!
As part of the 2015 Dunedin Craft Beer & Food Festival we are once again running our Homebrew Competition in conjunction with The Dunedin Malt House, collecting entries from keen homebrewers to battle for the chance to brew next year’s ‘Festival Brew’ on commercial brewing equipment with the guidance of a veteran brewer! There is also a great prize pool for 2nd and 3rd place, as well as varietal category winners, supplied by the Dunedin Malt House.
The cost for entry is $25 for students or $35 for general public, PLUS $10 for each beer entered. So for a student to enter 2 beers, they would pay their entry to the festival of $25 and then an additional $10 + $10 for their two beer entries for a total of $45. This fee is to be paid to the Dunedin Malt House when you drop your beer in to them.
This is a great opportunity to have your brews tasted and have feedback given by our panel of talented judges, hand picked from the cream of the crop of Dunedin’s commercial craft brewers. Get brewing!
