Hop Notch brewing is Jessica Heidrich’s and Magnus Karperyd’s happy and hoppy love child. Swedish Brew Queen Jessica started brewing last century and quickly earned a reputation among her peers. After many years and championship gold medals as a home brewer she turned pro in 2009. Being employed as head brewer is all nice and dandy but the longing after a brewery of her own finally got too strong. In 2018 Jessica and her partner Magnus finally started Hop Notch Brewing as their own brewery. Both Jessica and Magnus have always been hop-hearted so the name Hop Notch was as natural as it is cheeky. They love their hops and balanced beer so the hoppy-go-lucky of the brewery attitude aims to put a smile on everyone’s face!
All entries must be received at BrewGoat no later than Friday 4th June and judging shall take place on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th June.
Each entry must be brewed in accordance with the kit and recipe purchased, and will be judged against the other entries for that recipe, as well as against all entries in the overall category.
Winners will be decided by which beer is highest scoring by the judges per category, not which beer clones the relevant recipe most accurately or aligns closest to the specific BJCP category.
All entrants must submit 3 x 330ml or 500ml bottles of their home brew labelled with their BrewGoat order number, as provided in the recipe kit.
No other marks or writing should be present on the bottle, and entries with names or other personal identifying information will be refused entry to the competition (and likely consumed by the organisers without further notice).
Please send all competition entries to the following address, with adequate packaging to avoid breakages or leaking:
FAO Midsummer Mashout

By entering the competition, you are agreeing that your name may be shared by the event organisers in the event that your entry is awarded a prize.
Prizes will be awarded to the brewer of the highest scoring entry in each category, according to the judges’ scoring, as well as the highest scoring overall entry.
The scores provided by the judges are final and are not subject to revision or challenge.
