Recently Brisbane played host to Brewsvegas, a 10 day tribute to all things craft beer and tasty food. Held at various bars and pubs throughout Brisbane, BOSC at West End in conjunction with Riverside Brewing Co (a Sydney Brewing Company). held a jerky competition.
Bigwig Jerky entered 4 flavours in the competition including Honey Soy & Sesame, Chili & Lime, Smoky Chorizo and Original. With only limited preparation time, we managed to bag up all four flavours on the afternoon of the event and get them down to Bosc in time for judging. After many top beers from Riverside Brewing, including a 9% brew called 777 and meeting some great beer reps from local breweries the jerky results were announced.
Bigwig Jerky came a clear winner for the Honey Soy and Sesame release, and also clear second place for the Smoky Chorizo. What a great honor indeed, and has prompted the team to kick it up a gear and get Bigwig Jerky Co. up and running and available to the public.
Thank you all to those involved in the evening, especially Riverside Brewing Co, Darling Jerky, Bosc and Brewsvegas. Look forward to entering some new flavours again next year.
