Backyard Brewing Tournament

Backyard Brewing Tournament

2 August 2017


Our Backyard Brewing Tournament is on again at Brewhouse Margaret River. We are calling all WA home brewers to submit their best beers in a competition celebrating the creativity and diversity of the home-brew culture.

Iliya Hastings, General Manager @ BHMR is excited to be bringing the competition back. He explains the event, “Our backyard brewing tournament is a community event to band together brewers from across the region and further afar, to share their passion and craft their own beer. For the successful brewers, we hope this competition will help promote them and best of all get them brewing with like-minded people. This tournament is core to our business, given it is how we started BHMR, from a passion, it became a reality. Andrew Dykstra, aka Undies, our head brewer and I got together and decided to quit our day jobs, brew beer and play live music.”

Last year 29 brewers entered 46 beers. The styles of beer were hugely varied and included rauch beer (smoked), barrel aged stouts, massive IPA’s, heferwiezens, lagers and down the line session ales. The boys are super excited about what might come in this year.
