Thirsty work: win free beers for your office this Friday

Himmel Hund beer competition

Want to shout the office drinks this Friday? Melbourne brewers Himmel Hund are coming to the party, offering a free case of ice-cold beer to one lucky team in the CBD.

I don’t know about you, but I start dreaming about my Friday afternoon work-sanctioned glass of chardonnay at around 3pm… on a Thursday.

This week you should be planning your sips early, too, because Himmel Hund, a brand-spanking new brewer in Melbourne, is giving away a free case of its signature witbier to one thirsty workplace in the city, delivered just in time for knock-off drinks.

Annabel and Henry of Himmel Hund witbier

Inspired by the wheat beers they’d knocked back while travelling around Europe, Annabel and Henry threw in their jobs as chemical engineers to study a diploma in brewing. Before long, they were tinkering with their own witbier. The result is Himmel Hund, a refreshing, German-style brew with hints of coriander and orange peel.

“We’ve stayed true to traditional witbier brewing techniques to produce something really classic that is light but also complex to drink,” says Annabel. “But we do also like to add our own personal touch by experimenting with seasonal flavours that inspire us.”

For your chance to win a case of Himmel Hund, tell us in 25 words or less, why does your office deserve a free round this Friday. Entries close 2pm Thursday, and will be judged on creativity and wit.
