Our Festival Brew

Our Festival Brew

Black Rock  returns this year as the sponsor for the Dunedin Craft Beer & Food Festival Homebrew Competition, in association with The Dunedin Malt House! Home brewers battle it out for the chance to brew the next year’s ‘Festival Brew’ on commercial brewing equipment with the guidance of a veteran brewer.

This is a great opportunity for upcoming brewers to have their creations tasted, and feedback given by our panel of talented judges who are handpicked from the cream of the crop of Dunedin’s commercial craft brewers and beer aficionados. Previous overall winners have included a Raspberry Wheat Beer, a Bourbon Oaked Porter and a kettle soured Gose with many other brilliant brews! It’s a great opportunity to enter, or to taste a potential star in the making!

Big thanks to our friends at Malt House House and Emerson’s Brewery for all their help!

We believe in the responsible use of alcohol, so make sure on the day you enjoy plenty of the free water about the place and get amongst the food. It’s about educating yourself and finding out what brews you love, so we recommend choosing the taster sized pour to get the best experience!
