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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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 email@example.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.
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.
A gentle reminder from the sergeant:
We will be announcing the Brewer of the Year, eating some of the best wurst, and enjoying some great fresh German beers!
Save the date for Foxy Friday.
When: Friday November 27, from 1830
Where: The Fox and Firkin; 1370 North East Road, Tea Tree Gully SA 5091
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.
All welcome to getyourfoxon!

Just a quick reminder that membership renewals are now well and truly due, so if you are intending to remain a member (who wouldn’t, let’s be honest), please send your form to firstname.lastname@example.org or bring it along to the meeting on Wednesday, along with payment of course.
We currently have only one tasting lined up for the September meeting. If you have a beer you would like to present for some feedback, or are really chuffed with and just want to show it off, email the club on email@example.com and bring your beer along.
SABSOSA has been run and won for another year. A big congratulations to all members who placed this year, and good luck for the nationals if you are entering your beer. A particular mention to our glorious ex-president Brad Bown for getting the best mash beer gong. See you all at the presentations next Sunday 20th September, 12.30pm at the Wheaty. If you haven’t already, check the results here.
