Oh now here’s a thing, Joppa Stout, an award winning beer.
“Joppa Stout is the winner of the 2013 Champion Beer in the SOBA New Zealand National Home Brew competition. I’ve been brewing and adjusting the recipe over the past 10 years; ever since my husband and I received a home brew kit as a wedding present. Chocolate and coffee flavours balanced by a full body and a dry finish.
I hope this encourages more women to brew and enjoy great beer.”
It was a dream come true for Swanson brewer Barb Joppa when she won the SOBA New Zealand Home Brew Competition with the highest ever points score. Californian ex-pat Barbara’s prize was to have her beer brewed and commercially released by Hallertau Brewery. Joppa Stout is a full bodied beer with a lot of bitter-sweet chocolate and coffee flavours. Black in colour, with a thick tan head weighing in at 5.5% with 30 IBUs this promises to be a popular winter tipple
Commercial home brew :-) I’ve had a few of those. But this should be something a little special
