Thanks to those who have contacted the Club recently regarding BYO subscriptions. Despite several attempts to contact BYO, they have unfortunately not been responsive in offering Club subscriptions.
The committee have decide not to pursue Club subscriptions going forward.
We apologise for late notice and will ask those wanting to renew to do so on an individual basis in the future.
Winter is coming … hopefully that means the fermenters are filling with some dark winter warmers and a few brews for our upcoming Winter Competition.
Autumn has kicked off with a bang. Our SABC BeerBQ at Colonel Light Gardens Bowl club was a roaring success. Good Beer Wheaty followed shortly after. It was well attended by the SABC massive if the dodgy Facebook pics are anything to go by (Dave Pridham don’t give up your day job!). We then paid a visit to burgeoning Sweet Amber Brewing for May’s meeting. If you have brewed a beer for their bi-monthly competition, great job and thanks for representing SABC. Don’t forget, entries close 31st May.
As we head into winter, some good stuff is ahead with some notable dates for the diary:
June 20th: SABC Club meeting at the Wheaty. The theme is a faults tasting session. One not to be missed … so tell ya friends!
July 6-8th: Adelaide Beer & BBQ Festival at the Showgrounds (Social Gathering).
July 18th: SABC Club meeting, AGM and Winter Competition judging at the Wheaty. If you are thinking of standing for the coming year committee, please have a chat with me at our next meeting. Your Club needs you!
The Club has just re-stocked with fresh merchandise; t-shirts, caps and hoodies. We can’t bring them all along to each meeting, so why not email the Club at firstname.lastname@example.org to enquire about sizes so we can bring them along to the next gathering for you.
I look forward to seeing you all in a few weeks time.
It’s time to dust the cobwebs off the brew gear and get cracking for the annual SABC Winter Competition which is now just 7 weeks away. Brew your best beer or beers in one of the following AABC categories:
Low Alcohol (1.)
Brown Ale (7.)
Wheat and Rye Ale (13.)
Sour Ale (14.)
Fruit/Spice/Herb/Vegetable Beer (17.)
So why not have a crack at something you’ve never brewed before like a Pumpkin Ale, Light Australian Lager, Dark Mild, Gose or your best tried and trusted Weizen. Plenty of styles to chose from and a host of bountiful prizes including a full pass to this years ANHC and some some of the finest ingredients our friends at BeerCo have to offer.
It’s SABC club meeting time tomorrow night.
Please be aware that this month’s meeting is NOT at the Wheaty!
We will be enjoying a brewery tour of one of SA’s newer craft breweries at Sweet Amber Brewing from 7pm

There will be a burger food truck from 6pm, so bring a few dollars for some tukka.

It’s that time of year again when craft beer lovers and nerds convene at the Wheaty for Good Beer Wheaty from 10-13th of May. (That’s this week!!)

Saturday saw us enjoy another spectacular SABC BeerBQ with some 80 people in attendance. As the event continues to grow and get better and better each year, I wanted to take the time to thank a number of people for playing their part in its success.
Firstly, the committee who pulled together to make light work of a lot of tasks to get through, onya lads!
To our BBQ guru’s BJ, Sean Bradley, Jules, BobbyD and Butchy, what an effort! Meaty nirvana! Thanks guys.
A big thanks also to Lee Waters for her outstanding salads and Veggie options.
Thanks to everyone who brewed for the event, the beer turnout was truly epic with over 20 beers on tap at a terrific standard, not a bad beer in the house. Congratulations also to Joel Gaskin and Ben Till who’s beers were voted 3rd and 2nd respectively behind Wolf’s expertly brewed Pilsner which took out first place for best beer of the night, beautiful beer. Big thanks to our sponsors at Beerbelly too.
Our raffle was eventually won after several goes by that regular winner of SABC awards, Kieren Vercoe. Our thanks go to Brad at Left Barrel brewing for his support in the prize.
We’ve taken the experiences learned from this year’s event to hopefully improve things further. Please feel free to shoot us an email with any feedback for next year’s event, we’d love to make it even better.
Onwards now into competition season and if we can keep the standards high, state and national success is assured.
Thanks and good brewing!
