Congratulations to the ten lucky winners who we’ll be sending a kilo of the freshest new season Galaxy hops to.
As a part of our community program Ingrained, we bidded in HPA’s ‘Premiere Crop of the Hops’ Charity Auction. With 100% of the proceeds going to fighting depression and men’s health with beyondblue, the auction raised $10,000. We came away with 10 kilos and decided to give it away to home brewers to pack some punch into their next brew.
We were flooded with Facebook messages proposing everything from Saisons to American Stouts and many with wacky spacey names like ‘Rye-te Out Of This Galaxy’ and ‘The Empire Strike Back’. The mere thought of beer must make the creativity just flow!
A part of the entry was to describe how you would continue the fundraising love for a charity of your choice, and all we can say is brewers know how to have a good time while raising money and we only wish we could give you all some of the Galaxy.
The winners are:
|Peter Wheldon – QLD|
|Nick Barnes – QLD|
|luke gardiner – QLD|
|Dan Angus – QLD|
|Shakira Westdorp and Scott Morgan – NSW|
|Daniel Taverner – NSW|
|Ben Eatough – NSW|
|Joe Horvath – NSW|
|Andrejs Lazdins – VIC|
|Travis Walton – VIC|
Thank you to all who took the time to enter, we’re looking forward to hearing how our winners’ brews turn out and seeing them raise a glass with friends, brewing clubs and family in the name of charity – cheers!
