The Fine Print:

The Fringe will choose one grand prize winner and one runner up at random from all entries submitted. The winner will be announced at the Fringe Awards Night and will be notified on Facebook. Brewing will take place on a weekday, mutually agreed up between the prize winner and the Big Rock Brewmaster. The brewing will take approximately 6-8 hours to complete and the day will include lunch and a few beers during the downtime. The prize does not have an expiry date to allow for both parties to accommodate. The process allows for some conversation and input around what beer style they would like to brew (prior to brewing, which may affect the date of brewing), but is ultimately up to the discretion of the Big Rock Brewmaster. The brew will take place on our Nano system which brews 3HL (300 HL) at one time and will be served in the restaurant and growler bar at Big Rock Urban approximately 4 weeks after brewing and the Big Rock Urban Fringe Bar September 2017! The prize also includes a gift card to use to fill growlers of the beer to take home when it is ready!
