Asian Beer Awards Gold WON By Automated Brewing Machine

12 June 2012

I’m not sure if this is good news for the “prestige” of the Asian Beer Awards, but it looks like the Gold Medal was won by a New Zealand “brewer” using an automated WilliamsWarn brewing machine.  Details from the NZHerald:

An Auckland home-brewer has beaten big commercial players and received top honours at the Asia Beer Awards.

Sales executive Santiago Aon Ratto took away the gold award last week for a pilsner he concocted using a WilliamsWarn personal brewing machine at his home in Mission Bay.

The Asia Beer awards are part of Singapore's Beerfest Asia and attract hundreds of entries from a number of countries.

Ratto said the winning brew was only the third batch of beer he had made and used a recipe prepared by WilliamsWarn founder Ian Williams.
