SABC and Hawkers Hop Safari

Come and join us on an African hop safari on Sunday 25th February from 3-5pm at the Wheaty with our friends from Hawkers Beer.

Enjoy a special one off beer produced by Hawkers for the event as well as tasters of some home brewed beers made by your very own fellow club members specially for the event using rare and now unavailable hops from South Africa.

Get to talk to the brewers about their experiences brewing with the hops and taste something a bit different. It’s never to be repeated, so get on down to the Wheaty.

ANHC Sub-Committee

We’ll be looking to have our first of several ANHC planning meetings from 5-6pm on Sunday 25th February just after the Hawkers Beer event at the Wheaty lead by Gary Waters.

At this stage there are no formal plans for the meeting. We are looking to guage interest in those wanting to join in for ANHC planning and get some discussion going around the travel plans and event going forward. This is going to be a massive event later in the year for SABC, don’t miss your chance to get involved.

February Meeting

Get set for one of the most eagerly awaited meetings of the year on 21st February from 7pm at the West Thebby Social Club.

The meeting will feature a yeast master-class from Tomaso and Federico from Atomic Yeast. A word from Federico about the meeting:

“Brewing yeast: the science behind the art of beer”. Not a divine intervention gave man beer: chemistry and biology orchestrate the production of this delicious beverage. Yeast, a little single cell organism, plays a fundamental role and therefore it has been domesticated for its ability to produce different flavour and aroma. Since the discovery of yeast in the late 1860’s by Louis Pasteur we have been studying it, but, in 2018 we are still far from unveil all its mysteries. Here a short summary of what we learned along the way”

Summer Comp results announced: It’s the news you’ve been waiting for! All will be revealed and place getters announced, be there!

Meeting tastings will be kept to a maximum of 2, due to the presentation, please email the Club if you intend to bring a beer along. Only brewers that have confirmed their tastings will be accepted.
