With just two days until Bacchus Brewing unleash 26 dark beers at their Brumalia winter solstice beer festival, it’s about time the winner of our ‘Name Our Bacchus Brumalia Beer’ competition was announced!

Several Brisbane based beer bloggers collaborated with Bacchus and brewed a black saison. We decided to ask for the public’s help in naming it.

Nice work Tony!

Nice work Tony!

We’re pleased to announce the winner as Tony Van Der Linden who came up with the simple yet effective ‘Blacquinox’. Effective because the main hop variety in our saison is Equinox. Well done Tony, your Bacchus Brumalia tshirt will be awaiting your collection this weekend at the brewery. Thanks to everybody that took the time and effort to enter – you gave us bloggers a tough time as the level and quality of entries was extremely high.
