Brewing UCT: Winners of SAB Intervarsity Beer Brewing Competition 2016
Date: 10th September 2016
Brewing UCT once again dominated the SAB Intervarsity Beer Brewing Competition in a consecutive, astounding win. Not only did they successfully defend their title as overall champions with their brew Dunkel Breaking My Heart, but they managed to secure three additional first-place prizes in the categories for Best Lager, Best Cider and Best Winter Warmer. The team, who are based in the Chemical Engineering Department at UCT and comprised of postgraduate students and an academic mentor, will use their winnings to improve the microbrewery as well as sustainability in their processes. These award-winning recipes are the product of relentless research, a collective 18 years of experience from the team and a fervent commitment to beer crafting as both a science and art form. Well done to the team and many thanks to CeBER for the sponsorship and support.
