Siren Craft Brew Competition
Siren Crafts collaboration with Omnipollo in June last year was a rip roaring success. Rik Lindqvist was the winner of the Swedish homebrew competition, and Nacken was the beer from that partnership.
The gauntlet was thrown down to the UK homebrewing community to see what they could do, and the response was fantastic. A good range of styles were sent from pale ales to hoppy IPA’s, Brett IPA’s, Imperial Stouts and a few saisons.
The judges at Siren went through the entries scored them and then sent the top 6 to Sweden for Henok & Karl to judge.
The winner was our beer guru Michael Bates with a well crafted Saison. The judges felt that it had a great aroma and was a beautiful beer.
Siren Craft are in the process of booking in a brewing schedule and will work with Michael & Omnipollo in Sweden to put together the ideas of what they will brew, so keep your eyes out for updates.
Michael has been working at Trembling Madness for some time and has become our leading expert on everything beer, follow his Beer of the Week Column in the York Press or read his reviews on our blog here. With his production of superb original homebrews the future is looking very bright, I'm sure we will all be enjoying Michael's beers in the not to distant future.
We'll try to update everyone with anything that's exciting or new. Give us some feedback!
