What is Beer of Origin (BoO)?
BoO is a game that I devised. It involves beers brewed in Queensland being put through their paces against beers brewed in New South Wales over three rounds. After each round, one state is declared the winner based on certain criteria. The three rounds occur on dates that coincide with the NRL State of Origin.
Beer of Origin is a light-hearted bit of fun and is not to be taken too seriously. The only rule is that the beers partaking must be brewed in either QLD or NSW.
The special announcement for BoO 3 is…..
This gives the Brisbane public the opportunity to get involved in Beer of Origin. Not only that, BoO 3 occurs slap-bang in the middle of a week that will witness a vast number of events celebrating good beer in Brisbane and Queensland. So, there couldn’t be a better time for you to get involved in BoO!
PLUS, as an added bonus, I’ll be there!
BoO 3 will run from 5pm next Wednesday 17th July¹.
Once you’ve bought a beer² from either state, you will be handed a card and it will be stamped by friendly bar-staff. After having a beer from both states you will be entitled to vote for your favourite. When you vote, you will automatically go into a prize draw to win a $50 Grand Central Hotel voucher³.
This round, the winning state will be decided by which beer has received the highest amount of public votes. Simple.
See you next Wednesday!!
