Beer Tasters wanted

The Boundary Road Brewery said:

Applications are open for discerning lovers (999 to be exact) who know a good brew from a bad, appreciate a malt hops balance and fancy themselves a aficionado to become a Boundary Road Brewery Taster.

To gain a coveted position as a Boundary Road Brewery Beer Taster, serious beer lovers can apply at www.TheChosenOne.co.nz  where they will need to pass a beer knowledge test. The first 999 beer lovers successful in the test will be sent a tasting pack of three variants of Boundary Road Brewery lagers which they will put through a rigorous testing process before passing judgement on their favourite.

The most popular brew as voted by the tasters will be released for sale as The Chosen One, along with an ale, pilsner and ginger beer by The Boundary Road Brewery to a thirsty and grateful public from 1 August 2011.

Beer lovers need to get in quick as applications close 30 June 2011 and applicants must be 18 years or over and be able to demonstrate a sound knowledge of beer.

What’s more, one of the lucky 999 will win the title of Chairman of the Beer Tasters and will take home a Williamswarn Personal Brewery worth $6,000.

I got sent a pack of the three beers as media, and I have to say they were most pleasant. I’m not sure how many they have left of their 999 sample packs, but go for it if keen. My preferred one was Beer C.

    Rules out the current Labour front bench / their campaign team / the guardians of their website….

    As these guys also “brew” Ranfurly Draught, I think I will pass.

    There’s a new Ranfurly Lager that’s OK. Anyway, blind tasting of beer usually shows people are no better than random guessing when picking which brand is which!
