Over the next few weeks, I will be looking to put up the menus and popular voting results from a number of beer tastings I conducted during the last half of 2010. There are some really interesting results from a truly diverse selection of groups.
First up is the IRD "award winning beers" tasting in July. For the 35 participants, I selected beers which had won medals in recent BrewNZ Beer Awards or Australian International Beer Awards. The beer menu was:
Harrington’s Rogue Hop
Kaimai Golden Rye
Mike’s Organic Ale
The popular votes saw first place go to Kaimai Golden Rye, second to Emerson's 1812 and third to Harrington's Rogue Hop.
