Crafty's Pint of Origin Blind Tasting Pale Off
6:30pm 15 Nov, 2013
The Crafty Pint is heading to Hobart for the inaugural Beer Lovers Week.
And while there we'll be taking our [Blind Tasting Panels](/features/post/getting-blind-with-crafty-imperial-stouts/) public for the first time.
We're running a Pint of Origin style "Pale Off" at [Tattersalls Beer & Food Hall](/beer/bar/tattersalls-beer-food-hall/) that sees us line up a top notch pale ale from each of the Australian states alongside a couple of international crackers.
You'll taste them blind, score them and then we'll reveal who brews the best pale ale.
If you've never tasted beers blind before, we can assure you it's not only eye-opening but huge fun too, especially when the results are revealed. It's amazing how differently you experience beer when there's no label to guide your expectations...
We're lining up a panel of experts, including brewers from [Bacchus Brewing](/beer/brewery/bacchus-brewing/), [Mountain Goat](/beer/brewery/mountain-goat/) and [3 Ravens](/beer/brewery/3-ravens/), to judge too and will have prizes for those whose scores are closest to the judges and for the person who guesses the most actual beers - if anyone can guess any, that is.
You'll be given a crash course in how to assess and score beers, an insight into pale ales and also the chance to hear from the people that make the beers you love.
Tickets cost just $30pp, which gets you nine beers, food and enlightenment (and prizes if you're good enough). Book yours [here](http://www.trybooking.com/DVUZ) - **Limited spots only due to logistics of running such an event**
It takes place at [Tattersalls Beer & Food Hall](/beer/bar/tattersalls-beer-food-hall/) from 6.30pm on November 15 - what better way to kick off the Tasmanian International Beerfest weekend?
The Crafty Pint is also taking over the taps at Tatts for Beer Lovers Week, with a selection of beers from all over Australia covering a wide range of styles from Pilsner to Stout. Look out for the full lineup on here soon...

The Crafty Pint is an independent online magazine and resource for anyone interested in craft beer in Australia. We bring an honest, old-fashioned journalistic approach to beer's brave new world, telling stories because they're worth telling not because someone is paying us to write them.
Like many of the people who have changed the face of beer in Australia, we believe in authenticity, integrity, enjoyment and love. We hope to play a role in helping good beer, brewed by good people, find its way into the hands of more drinkers.
