BeerBQ thank you

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!

Clint

SABC Winter Event ‘BeerBQ’

As has become our winter event tradition in recent years, the Great SABC BeerBQ will be held on Saturday 5th May 2018.

As always, this will be a fully subsidised event for SABC club members and one not to be missed as previous events have been sensational. Non-members and friends just $20.

Book now:

Again, the venue this year is the Colonel Light Gardens Bowling Club. Kick off is at 6.00pm, and we will be wrapping things up by 10.00pm

Once again, there will be ample delicious barbecuey goodness to eat, accompanied by plenty of sides and other bits and pieces.

Members (and guests) are encouraged to bring along a keg of their finest home brew. There will be an informal competition to decide beer-of-the-night, so bring along lots of friends to vote for your beer (this is a proven strategy…). The winner will walk away with a nifty prize, and some points towards Brewer of the Year.
