November Meeting

It’s Summer Comp time again soon as .. SABC brews the Wheaty!

To help celebrate their fantastic success at the locally held national CBIA, taking out best small brewery in Australia and winning silver or bronze for 4 of their beers, Wheaty Brewing Corps with head brewer and landlord, Jade Flavell, will be giving us the run down of how they brew their best beers.

The November meeting will give Jade a chance to talk about comps, brews, recipe writing and hopefully give a few tips for us mere home brewers. We are so unworthy..

Remember the prizes for the summer comp will be bigger than ever, did we mention flights to next years GABS and a brewing experience at the Wheaty? Oh, and Brewer of the Year points. So choose from their vast list of beery concoctions and  be brave… or foolish, AND It’s all about BEER.

See you at the Wheaty on Wednesday 15th November.

If you have a beer that has placed in SABSOSA, we’d love to hear from you to share some of your special brew at our Club meeting on the 20th.

Let us know at info@sabrew.com if you could present your beer at the meeting.

September meeting update

September is synonymous with our state championships SABSOSA. It’s a month that many home brewers in SA look forward to and work hard to prepare for, as they anxiously await the results of the comp.

At SABC, we will no doubt have a few high achievers in this year’s comp and this got us thinking.. Why not celebrate in this success and share in our knowledge for the greater good?

We’d like to invite category winners or place getters to have the opportunity to share some of their tasty brews with us on Wednesday 20th September at the Wheaty.

Do you have a beer that has placed that you’re particularly proud of? How has your recipe formulation evolved to produce a winning beer? What are some of the keys to your success? … and more importantly, care to share your recipe and do you have a few longnecks to spare??

Let us know by emailing the Club at info@sabrew.com if you can participate in September’s meeting. We are hoping to get at least 3 participants.

Don’t be shy, this is your chance to show off!
