Denmark breweries steal limelight at South West Craft Beer Festival

Irregular drizzles proved no dampener as lovers of the liquid gold burped about expanding their palate at the Old Broadwater Farm on Saturday.

Plenty of interesting characters were in attendance at the South West Craft Beer Festival - from loose tongue bogans to Vikings who could only provide fake names to a bloke wearing a Borat-esque lycra pink top, approximately six sizes too small. 

While some sought refuge from wind and rain under tents, others took in the beautiful surrounds, sprawling on the lawn with friends and taking in the live music entertainment.

A record number of 18 brewers from Mandurah to the south coast of Denmark showed off their top drop and consumers were treated to a wide breadth of flavors and aromas.  

Denmark’s breweries Boston Brewing Co snagged the One Off Tasting Brew of the Year for their Stoker smoked beer while Artisan Brewery won the South West Beer of the Year for their Tripel Treating brew.
