THE RESULTS ARE IN!
The Civil War was a long hard fought battle with only one side Victorious. A great weekend of fun with people tasting beer from both sides of the Brisbane River. The Northern brewers battled hard and fast, alas could not beat the strength and might of the Southern brewers. The final tally was 44% for the Northside to 56% to the Southside.
For those that want to know how the beers lined up:
* Brouhaha’s Milk Stout vs Black Hops Eggnog Stout. Feedback from the crowd was that the Stouts were one of the hardest to choose a winner. Northside’s Brouhaha came through with the win.
* Croft (Archer) Brewing The Doc Flanders Style Brown Sour vs White Lies Brewing Raspberry Sour - White Lies Brewing Raspberry Sour was the flavour of the night with more votes received for the Southside.
* Newstead’s Tara Irish Red vs Helios’ Goddess Red Rye. A close battle of the team captains General Fergus “Stonewall” Seppanen from Newstead going out hard. However it was Charlie ‘Rebel Yell’ Hodgson from Helios Brewing who came through with more votes at the end of the weekend.
* Bravo Brewing’s Happy Chappy Session Pale Ale vs Ballistic Pale Ale. This was the closest battle of the weekend. Bravo Brewing from the Brisbane's Northside came through with the overall win.
