Bluetoungue Offers Drinkers a Chance to Win

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

Bluetongue Premium Lager is celebrating the official opening of its new Bluetongue Brewery at Warnervale on the NSW Central Coast by giving two lucky beer lovers the chance to brew their very own batch of Bluetongue with three of their mates.

Late July saw Jennifer Hawkins tasting the very first bottle to come off the packaging line at the Bluetongue Brewery, and is looking forward to sharing the freshest beer possible with Australians in the lead up to this Summer through the “Taste to Win” competition.

Pieta Jordan, Bluetongue Marketing Manager said, “The new Bluetongue Brewery has been engineered for taste and quality, which results in that brewery-fresh great taste. Bluetongue beer lovers understand that the best tasting beer is always the freshest beer. It became obvious to us that we should give our consumers the chance to see and experience the level of sophistication and care we put into every brew of Bluetongue – and provide them with the opportunity to taste beer as the brewers do; fresh from the tank. Every brew of Bluetongue is brewed with three different types of hops to deliver that perfect balance of flavour, aroma and finish so I have no doubt that they will jump at the chance to come to the brewery and brew their very own signature Bluetongue”.

The Bluetongue “Taste to Win” promotion will be running between October to December in bottle shops nationally along with supporting promotions at selected licences premises. The competition will give two Bluetongue winners and three of their mates the opportunity to visit the new Bluetongue Brewery at Warnervale and brew their very own batch of Bluetongue which will be bottled with a personalised label.

This once-in-a-lifetime experience will include;

  • flights for four from their nearest capital city to Newcastle;
  • two nights’ accommodation; and
  • $2000 spending money for the major prize winner

7am this morning marked a momentous occasion for the beer industry in Australia, with brewing commencing at the brand new 120 million dollar Bluetongue Brewery at Warnervale.

“I am thrilled to be a part of the new Bluetongue Brewery team, which has enormous potential to brew the highest quality beer brands. Pacific Beverages has created a very flexible brewery, which can brew a variety of beers ranging from traditional European lagers to modern American and Australian beer styles.
