The Oktoberfest lunch at the German Club on Saturday was a big success by all accounts. 40 members came along for some great German beers and hearty food, not to mention a good old chin wag. And I’m pretty sure no one mentioned the war…
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
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!
We are excited to announce that the next SABC function has been locked in. Get your lederhosen on for an Oktoberfest lunch at the German Club! The details are:
Saturday October 24, starting at 12:30pm
German Club of South Australia
223 Flinders Street, Adelaide
Lunch comprising main course and dessert, plus one complimentary beer will be provided by the club for financial members. Guests and partners are most welcome, with the cost per head being $40 with a pint, or $32 for those not wishing to drink beer. Of course, any guests signing up as new members on the day (it’s only $60) will avoid having to pay for this function, as well as benefitting from all the other perks our members enjoy.
We will be presenting the brewer of the year award at this event, and will hopefully also have someone to give a brief talk on the history of Oktoberfest (If you consider yourself an expert, get in touch with us. You may score an extra beer…).
Please RSVP, along with any payments for guests, by October 10th by emailing email@example.com. Payments can be made in cash on the day or directly to the club account:
