Cannibale Royale & Two Chefs Brewing Homebrew Competition | Very strict test

During the preliminary rounds in July, the five most promising beers were selected from dozens of ambitious homebrewers. These are The System, One To Nine Brewing, Pistolen Paultje, Spooky Brewing and The Sadistic Wizard. The professional jury, consisting of Gavan Goossen (co-founder Cannibale Royale), Thomas Wijns (founder deBierBalie), Sanne Slijper (one of the Two Chefs), Monique ten Kortenaar (Lucas Bols/Wynand Fockink), Oscar Blok (manager Cannibale Royale Handboog ) and Klaas Evenhuis (co-founder of Wild van Wild) will subject the five final beers to a very strict test during a tasting. Are the beers exciting, surprising and innovative? Are they accessible to a wide audience? And do they work well as an aperitif or with grilled meat?

Helping hand by Cannibale Royale and Two Chefs Brewing

Eventually, the expert jury will choose a winner, who sees his or her beer brewed in a 2.500 liter batch by Two Chefs Brewing. Sanne Slijper of Two Chefs explains: “When Cannibale Royale was founded, we had only just started. In close collaboration with the Cannibale Royale team, we then developed a beer that is now on tap in all locations. That’s why we understand very well how important support is for starting breweries. That’s why we are very happy to be brewing the winning beer in a serious volume and giving the makers a push in the right direction.”
