ROCK your Home Brew Winners

Rock Your Home Brew



A huge thanks to everyone who entered, there were some stunning beers and great to see the results you home brewers are getting at home with Black Rock!

Congratulations to our overall first place winner Martin Taylor!!

Martin took out the competition with his Schwarzwälder Chocolate Beer.

Martins tasting note: "Schwarzwälder translates to Black Forest where I was aiming to make a Chocolate Beer with a hint of cherry like a black forest gateau."

Well Martin it really does taste like a Black Forest Gateau and really impressed all of our judges! Well done!

Coming in with a very close 2nd Place is Jackson O'Riley with his White Lies White Stout. This was a very cool beer that looked like a Pale Ale but had the aroma and taste of a Stout which had us all second guessing what we were seeing vs tasting. Well Done Jackson!

3rd Place goes to Tim Kemmett with Mein Maibock.

The other top 10 finishers are here in no particular order:

Sam Healey - Black Burner Smoked Chilli porter
Richard Pettinger - MMB Winter Ale
Daniel Warren - Cacow Milk Chocolate Stout
Riki McRodden - Summer Haze New Zealand Saison
Martin Taylor - Apparitions White IPA
Troy Collier - Pucker Up Mixed Fermentation Sour Beer
Tim Kemmett - Riwaka Amber Ale

Congratulations to the brewers of all top 10 beers. We will be in touch with you all in the coming days to get your prizes to you.

Also a big thank you to our sponsors IKegger NZ and New Zealand Craft Brewing Company who have brought this competition to you and help make it free!
