Yes, it’s reminder season again here at SABC. This one’s for the BYO magazine subscription offer. We would like to finalise this one by mid February as well. The magazine is a good read, with quite a lot of useful information and interesting recipes each issue. The sign up page is here, so if you are interested please head over and put your name down.
We would like to finalise the Gladfield grain bulk buy by mid February. Currently, we have less than half the number of bags required to go ahead with the bulk buy, so if you have been thinking of putting your name down, please head over to the sign up page and fill out the form.
The January meeting is this week, and in case you haven’t caught the news, we will be at Little Bang. They have some shiny new stainless to show us, and no doubt have other topics in mind to bang on about.
As usual we will have time for tastings, so if you have a beer to bring along let us know. We’re starting at 7.00pm, and the address details are below. See you there!

If you’re interested in becoming a BJCP certified judge, we’re looking at organising a new study group for this year. The study group meets once a month, and the purpose is to work through the BJCP styles, tasting examples of each style and discussing and scoring the beers tasted. The goal is to get your judging skills to the point that you can sit the tasting exam and pass. There is also a beer and brewing knowledge aspect, which is more about personal reading. There’s a lot of written material available form a number of sources specifically aimed at helping you pass the online entrance exam.
There is a tasting exam scheduled for April. If you missed out on the last one, or want to try for a higher score, aim for this.
Anyone interested in the study group or exam should contact Gary on 0417893321
