Wheaty / SABC / SABSOSA Collab
To celebrate 10 years of SABC, 25 years of SABSOSA and the long running support provided to both by the Wheaty, we’re very excited to announce we will be brewing a collaboration beer to be launched at the SABC Anniversary Dinner on December 10th! SABC and SABSOSA winners will be invited to join the brew day expected to be in October.
SABC took the opportunity at the SABSOSA presentation to thank Jade for all her support over the last 10 years with a gift of two exceptional Bruery beers.
Special thanks to Luke and Sam who pulled this gift together from their personal cellar.
The SABSOSA committee has decided to rebrand the annual event with a name that better reflects its position as the top amateur brewing contest in SA. From 2023 the event will be called the Amateur Brewing Championship of South Australia.
