Big Brew Taste & Judge

May 26 2016

Sat June 18 at 2pm, Wallington’s Home Brew will host their Big Brew Taste & Judge. Come along and meet local craft brewers and sample some quality home brew.*

On Saturday May 7, 2016 Wallington’s Home Brew team challenged Geelong Craft Brewers to a Big Brew competition in celebration of International Homebrew Day. Six teams competed on the day with four customers taking home a pack of the featured hop – Columbus – to brew their own entry.


With plenty of time to mature, the boys will be back with their brews on Sat June 18 for the day of judgement. Competitors will taste each other’s home brew and judge their top three. As well as accolades and boasting rights, the winner will receive a Wallington’s Gift Certificate and the inaugural Wallington’s Home Brew Trophy.

Hop Pellets

The Columbus Hop

Originating from the United States, Columbus is an excellent dual purpose hop. With an alpha acid rating of between 14% and 16%, Columbus is perfect for crafting a bitter foundation for Pale Ales, Stouts and bitter lagers. Used as a late addition, Columbus gives a pungent herbal aroma, somewhat earthy. It can imbue a pleasant hint of citrus to fresh brews. Read more about the Hops varieties available at Wallington’s WRG.
