How many brewers does it take to make a beer?

December 3, 2014

Logo of Ballarat Beer Fest 2015Collaborations between brewers are nothing new, in fact they are almost a staple of the brew calendar and are eagerly awaited by beer lovers all across the country. Some involve like-minded souls with similar brewing philosophies and others are simply craftsmen and women who enjoy each other’s company and happen to be in the same brewery at the same time.

For next year’s Ballarat Beer Festival a group of collaborators are gearing up to brew what is believed to be the world’s biggest collaborative beer. Fifteen brewers will gather next week to craft a Hoppy Summer Wheat beer to be launched at the festival in January.

Brews News readers have the chance to win a trackside seat at the brew day as well as 4 tickets to the festival. Put your thinking caps on and come with a suitable name for the beer and the prize could be yours. [PM]Comp tile
