48 Breweries, over 340 beer styles and only one Grand Champion Beer!

For the second time in its history, Burleigh Brewing has won the 2019 Grand Champion Beer for the limited release Burleigh Bock at the Royal Queensland Food & Wine Show.

Out of 48 breweries and over 340 submitted beer styles, Burleigh Bock was announced as the overall champion beer! Judges remarked, `Burleigh Bock was fantastically malty and had great complexity of flavour and was deemed to fit the style very well, demonstrating finesse.’ 

The beers deemed to be the best in the eight individual categories were pooled together for the final tasting to determine the Grand Champion Beer for 2019.

Along with the Grand Champion Beer status, Burleigh Brewing was awarded a $5,000 education bursary prize for the opportunity to develop a beer educational experience.

“It takes a village to raise a child, it takes an entire brewery to make a great beer! We are honoured to receive this award for a second time and congratulations to all those who entered. We make a lot of great beers and Burleigh Bock is definitely a stand out,’” said Burleigh Brewing Founder and Master Brewer, Brennan Fielding.

Burleigh Bock was first released as an exclusive brew for the most recent Beer InCider festival held in Brisbane last Saturday. The smooth and sweet beer sold out in a number of hours to the craft beer loving crowd.

Burleigh Bock is a rich, smooth, raisin coloured lager with malt sweetness and a slight liqueur character of 6.7% ABV. To experience the Burleigh Bock Grand Champion Beer for yourself, visit the Burleigh Brewing Taphouse in Burleigh Heads this coming weekend.
