MASTER OF THE ‘BREWNIVERSE’- entries open 9 May 2019

Calling all home-brewers! The world’s number one home-brew brand, Coopers DIY Beer, is celebrating Australian DIY-brewing by giving one lucky person the chance to have their own beer brewed and canned by Coopers and sold nationally at Dan Murphy’s. 

The Master of the Brewniverse competition is a chance in a lifetime, open to anyone who’s ever dreamed of starting their own brewery, had a hankering for creating their own signature brew or just admired someone else’s and are ready to give it a crack. 

“We’re keen to discover Australia’s greatest DIY brewer and launch the next generation of DIY brewers, with this exciting opportunity” said Scott Harris, Coopers, Brewing Products, Divisional Manager.

“With Coopers DIY Beer, brewing can be as simple as ‘Mix, Brew, Bottle, Enjoy,’ or you can get adventurous with your own additions and creative flair. While we know this will excite our current users, it is also the perfect opportunity for eager beginners. Many established craft brewers started their journey with Coopers DIY Beer so we’re hoping to incite some nostalgia and hear from some of our old fans too.”

As a surge in craft breweries grows alongside rising craft beer consumption, so too is a renewed interest in DIY brewing, demanding expanded distribution to include liquor retailers –as the ultimate craft beer is one your make yourself. 

The competition kicks off in celebration of Good Beer Week and runs through until the end of July with the winning brew available in-store at Dan Murphy’s from May 2020.
