SABC Glass Sales

As our members will know, the member benefit for the 2014 year is an awesome pair of etched SABC glasses. They’re made from fantastic sturdy glass and stand up to even the most powerful dishwashers. Their shape makes them excellent for enjoying your favourite beer style – commercial or homebrew – when ever you prefer.

But, is two not enough? Got a friend or family member who would like some? We’re now able to offer these glasses for sale to members. They’re just $10/each!

Email the club at sabrewclub@gmail.com if you’re interested – they’re available for pick up at any club meeting – or alternative pick up arrangements can be made (we prefer not to ship due to breakage risk).

BYO Magazine Offer – Last Chance!

As I type this I’m finalising the details for the BYO Subscription offer. It WILL be sent to BYO this week – so you have until COB Thursday to get your name down – or you miss out until next year!

$40 gets you 8 issues over 12 months – the magazine is full of handy hints, tips and recipes and this offer is cheaper than you can get it in stores for locally – with a percentage of the cost going directly back to SABC.

September Members Meeting. This Wednesday!

It’s that time of the month again folks, time for our regular members meeting at The Wheaty. They’re held every 3rd Wednesday from 7pm out in the back room.

This meeting has no set discussion or presentation topic, but we will be running a dollar raffle for 2kg of spec malt – Special Roast, Melonoidin or Dark Crystal (to be decided). 100% of all money received goes directly to the club, as the malt was generously donated by a friend of the club.

This may also be your last chance to get in on the 8 issue BYO subscription for $40! This is a fantastic offer to get behind, the magazine has a good range of articles catering for brewers of every skill and experience level. It is cheaper to get the magazines via this order than to sign up for your own subscription by a good amount, with the extra benefit for your club that a percentage of the cost directly comes back to SABC!

Spots are filling fast – the offer will end at THIS club members meeting so that the details can be sent to BYO a week after the club meeting – you have until that date to get in!

We’ll see you at The Wheaty!
