Woodshed Brewery at Renmark

We are calling for expressions of interest from members who may be interested in a trip to Renmark to visit the Woolshed Brewery.  This is still only in the embryonic phase, but some or all of the following could be considered:

  • Bus trip to Renmark to visit the Woolshed Brewery
  • Possible participation in a brew day
  • Meeting the local Renmark home brew club and swapping beers
  • Possibility of  houseboat accommodation
  • Partners who may want to do a wine and produce tour of the surrounds

Anticipated timing is late May/early June when life is quieter for the brewery and also giving enough time to brew for the swap.  This would also be clear of our next major event, which is slated for April.

If you are interested in something like this, please email the club at events@sabrew.com

October Club Meeting

Due to the Oktoberfest lunch at the German Club being so soon after this month’s meeting, there will be no formal topic of discussion.  However, the Wheaty will be launching (drum roll) Simon’s winning Cal Common.  The keg is being tapped at 6pm, so if you want to be there for the fanfare, tell the boss that the dog’s escaped and hightail it for the pub!  Simon also has a comparison brew to present and talk about.  This leaves two spots for other tastings, so if you have something you want feedback on, email the club at info@sabrew.com

This year’s glasses will be available for collection, so if you haven’t grabbed yours yet come and see a committee member.  Please note that glasses will not be available for collection at the German Club lunch.

Rehn Bier Members’ Offer

SABC Rehn Bier Offer

For those of you who enjoy the offerings of the Barossa’s Rehn Bier, Brenton Rehn has provided SABC members with a fantastic offer. SABC members will receive a 5% discount on any beer purchased, plus 1 Rehn Bier branded glass (425ml Keller) for every 9 bottles purchased.

If you are interested in taking advantage of this offer, please complete the order form (link at top of page) and return it to Rehn Bier. Payment is made direct to Rehn Bier as per the form instructions. Brenton has also kindly offered to deliver any orders placed by 6/11/2015 to the November SABC meeting. Please advise SABC if you require this.


Based in the beautiful Barossa Valley, the Rehn Bier nano-brewery uses traditional brewing principles to hand-craft every single bottle of beer. There’s no rush. Brewing, bottling, hand labelling and conditioning each small batch of our craft beers takes six weeks, giving the aromas and flavours the optimal amount of time and love to develop. Unlike the larger players, each beer we brew is all natural with no additives. We’re also strong believers in low beer miles. Every bottle contains local and Australian ingredients wherever possible because we think they are as good as or better than any you’ll find in the world. At Rehn Bier, you’ll discover and enjoy all the aromas, flavours and passion that come with a well-made artisan beer. We’ll provide you the perfect complement to the delicious wine, food and produce that this region is globally renowned for.

Foxy Friday

Save the date for Foxy Friday.

It is time once again for SABC to visit the Fox and Firkin to sample the selection of English Ales on tap. No formalities planned, just a gathering of like-minded, thirsty individuals looking to unwind at the end of the week.

If you want to grab some food, the Fox also does some good grub in the front bar/outside area.
