SABSOSA Results Are In

SABSOSA result have been posted (in record time – good work guys).  Congratulations to all place-getters, and particularly to SABC members, who are well represented.

Check the full results here.  Note that the BOTY leaderboard has been taken down until the announcement and presentation.

September Meeting Tastings

We currently have no tastings lined up for the next meeting.  If you have a beer you would like some constructive feedback on, or even if you just want to show off, send us an email and bring it along.

You will need three longnecks or equivalent, and your recipe and brew day notes.

Can You Brew For Club Night?

As you are aware, we need brewers to brew for Club Night. In an effort to keep it all in one place, we have created a web form for brewers to submit their info.  Even if you have told a committee member that you are brewing, please take a minute to fill out the form so we know what we are getting and from whom.  We still need more brewers, so if you think you have some spare bandwidth in your brewing schedules, please help out.

The form is here.

ANHC5 Needs You!

ANHC 5 in Adelaide is looming ever closer, and the conference team are seeking some enthusiastic volunteers who are keen to lend a hand during the event.  If you’d like to be a part of the team and assist with things like processing registrations, moving kegs, pouring/serving beers and whatever other important tasks are required to make the event a success, please email Lachlan via

These aren’t requirements, but it would help us to know:

  • what days are you available to help (13-15th October) ?
  • are you  capable of wrangling a 50L keg?
  • are you attending any of the conference events?
  • do you have an RSA certificate?

Gawler Show – It Was a Clean Sweep!

Congratulations and welcome to our newest member, Travis Campbell.  What Travis’s wife didn’t know when she signed him up for Father’s Day, was that his membership means we can now boast that every place in all categories for the Gawler Show was taken out by an SABC member.  Nice work people!

The BOTY leader board has now been updated, you can check it out here.

SABC Apparel Order

We are just about ready to order another batch of gear, so if you are interested in a t-shirt, polo or hoodie, now is the time to get your order in.

Please email the club by this Friday if you would like to take part. Clint will get back to you with costs and sizing guidelines.

September Meeting Update

A quick update on next month’s meeting.  We are lucky to have Matt King coming along to talk to us about the craft beer industry and where things are heading over the next little while.  For those that don’t know, Matt is one of the brains behind the Crafty Pint website and blog. As you can imagine, he has his finger pretty well on the pulse.

The September meeting is on Wednesday the 21st, and we start at 7pm, out the back at the Wheaty.

ANHC Club Night Boat Build

The final (hopefully) push to get the boat-bar finished for Club Night is scheduled for Saturday September 3rd.  Anyone with any kind of manual skills (let’s face it, opposable thumbs will do) who has a bit of time to help out in the morning would be most welcome.  Gary will throw a few snags on the BBQ, and maybe we can even persuade him to knock the lids of a couple of his finest (or you could bring one of your own…)

As mentioned at the meeting this week, we also need some more people to put their hand up to brew for the event, so if you have a keg to spare or the time to brew one in time for mid-October, or if you can help with the build on the 3rd, please let us know.

We also talked about gas supplies for Club Night.  The ANHC has asked if we can organise as many cylinders as possible, so if you can spare one for the night please get in touch via the  Club Night email address:
