The ultimate homebrew competition…
The joys of brewing your own beer have created a generation of people for whom the process is every bit as exciting as the end result. Many a BrewDog crew member began their interest in beer by starting off brewing their own at home – not least James and Martin themselves. Back in 2008 they entered beers created in Martin’s garage into a Tesco competition, and ended up taking the first, second, third and fourth prizes.
So today we are paying this forward, as we are partnering with Tesco and launching #HomeBrewDog – the ultimate competition for homebrewers.
For the next ten weeks, we are accepting entries from anyone who would like to create a beer at home they believe is worthy of BrewDog, and would like to follow in the footsteps of James and Martin. We have assembled a world-leading panel of industry experts to judge the beers, chaired by our co-founders alongside the legendary beer writer Pete Brown. To reflect this, our quest to find the next level of homebrewing talent has some truly life-changing prizes:-
- The winner will receive an all-expenses paid trip to our Ellon HQ to re-brew their beer.
- It will be launched into our online shop and as an exclusive listing in Tesco.
- Also the beer will be launched on draft across our network of UK bars.
- Our champion can host a launch event at any UK BrewDog bar (and pick the beer list).
- We will also send the victorious homebrewer a few bottles of their creation too!
But there is one other aspect of the prize, as well.
- We will offer the homebrewer who impresses our judging panel the most a job at BrewDog.
If you’ve ever wanted to use your homebrew hobby to kick-start a career within the craft brewing industry – this is very much your chance. To recognise the skill and ability it will take to win #HomeBrewDog, we will offer the victor an opportunity to join our Ellon brewing crew. If you’ve got the talent, then we have the career waiting for you here at BrewDog. That trip to re-brew your beer could well become the first of many!
Check this link for all the #HomeBrewDog details. There you’ll find the online form to print off and complete with the all-important brewsheet info for your entry and a brief overview of why your beer rocks. This is a once in a lifetime chance to show what you can do – and the job offer is entirely optional of course! If you do come out on top and would like to be a part of the BrewDog crew though, we will very much make it happen.
We’re accepting homebrewed entries from today until Friday 16th September 2016, with three bottles of a single beer, secured and packed safely, dropped off per person at any of our UK BrewDog bars or posted to our brewery at:
Balmacassie Industrial Estate
Please note it is one entry per person, and we will only accept the same beer, not three different bottles! Please check out the full terms and conditions here!
We love homebrewing, here at BrewDog. It’s the reason we released the recipes to all of our beers (and those we are going to brew in 2016) as DIY Dog, to encourage others to have a go at stamping their individuality on our creations. There are few other industries where those who wish to earn a livelihoods can hone their skills in advance, using equipment of different scale but entirely the same principle.
And so we are psyched to offer the chance for someone to do just that, and if they wish join our amazing brewteam by displaying the talent they have worked hard to develop. Homebrewing is deservedly the creative cornerstone of our entire industry. We can’t wait to see what beers you guys come up with for #HomeBrewDog!
You have until 16th September to let those imaginations run riot…
