Unfortunately it’s way too late to run a competition to name my first born…or my second for that fact, but it isn’t too late to help name my first commercially brewed beer! Well that’s not entirely true, while i did have a hand in brewing it, it was a collaboration brew with fellow Brisbane beer blogging mates – Darren from 250 Beers, Jason from Brews & Bacon, Roger from RPMbeer, Judd from Brewed Crude and Bitter, and David from Beer Food Brisbane and of course – Bacchus Brewing Co (Ross, Bill, Matt and Toshi).
So why did we brew this beer? Well if you haven’t heard by now Bacchus Brewing Co is holding the Brumalia Winter Solstice Beer Festival on June 20th & 21st where 25 brewers from across Australia (and 1 group of beer swilling bloggers) were invited to each brew a dark beer at Bacchus for this event. So all up there will be 26 dark beers on tap for the 2 days.
Now with six beer bloggers putting thier heads together, you’d think we’d be able to come up with a name on the day, but with so much Research & Development going on in the brewery while brewing….well we’ll leave it at that!
Anyhow, we decided the best way is to throw it out there to see if anyone on the interweb could come up with the right name!
The beer we brewed is a Black Saison using Equinox hops, so hopefully that’ll give you a few ideas for a cool name. The winner, who will be selected by us bloggers will win a Brumalia t-shirt.
