The winner of the competition celebrating Bintani’s new proprietary hop, Fortnight, has been revealed.
Phil Rutjens, brewery manager at Southern Bay Brew Co, will be hosted by Bintani on a rare educational trip to North America and Germany.
He will visit Portland and Bend, Oregon, as well as Seattle and Yakima, Washington, where he will have unparalleled access to YCH Hops’ farms and expert hop breeders.
Following that, the tour will continue to Munich, taking in the world’s biggest beverage convention, Drinktec, as well as day one of Oktoberfest.
Phil’s entry went like this:
What 5 ingredients would you bring to the Ultimate Fortnight?
First Ingredient: The boyish excitement of someone on their first overseas trip.
Second Ingredient: My year 8 German could be useful…?
Third Ingredient: I recently purchased my first ever bag with wheels. What better road test?
Fourth Ingredient: The fact we have the same(great) taste in music surely makes for excellent travel companions?
Fifth Ingredient: The opportunity to have the BEST BIRTHDAY EVER on the 9th September!
