Name our Bacchus Brumalia beer!


June 2, 2015 by 250 Beers

A few weeks ago, half a dozen Brisbane beer bloggers (including myself) joined forces and brewed a beer with Bacchus Brewing at their Capalaba brewery for Bacchus’ forthcoming Brumalia beer festival.

brumalia bloggers beer bacchusThere are 25 collaboration brews due to be unveiled for the event – collaborations brewed specifically for the two day festival on June  20th/21st. Each and every one is a dark beer. It’s winter after all.

If you search Wikipedia for the word ‘Brumalia‘ you’ll quickly realise that there is no better name for the event. A snippet reads:

“Brumalia was an ancient Roman, winter solstice festival honouring Saturn/Cronus and Ceres/Demeter, and Bacchus in some cases.”


Now, talking of names, us beer bloggery folk need YOUR help. We’d like YOU to name our beer for us. Sooo, we’ve set up a competition…and you could win yourself a Brumalia tshirt.bacchus brumaliaAll you need to do is email your entry to before midnight on Saturday 6th June. You can enter as many times as you like but only emails to this address will be accepted.

The beer itself is a Black Saison so keep that in mind. Perhaps, also consider that we’re bloggers, or maybe that the beer contains a new hop variety called ‘Equinox’. It’s up to you but don’t be afraid to get creative and a bit crafty.

The winner will be decided by myself, Jason from Brews & Bacon, Judd from Brewed, Crude & Bitter, Darren from Craftbeerscapade, Roger from RPM Beer, Food, Random and Instablogger David from BeerFoodBrisbane.

Good luck!
