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!!)
This year has some sessions that are not to be missed, and as an SABC member, the Wheaty are kindly offering each SABC member that attends a session a FREE schooner for that session.
See the sessions here:
You must register to be eligible by filling in your details and the session you will be attending via this link: https://goo.gl/forms/TlxDchhVcppNx54o2
Unfortunately due to a lack of interest in the Gladfields malt buy, we will not be going ahead with the bulk buy at this time. Apologies to those who have made purchases, these will be refunded in full in the coming few days.
If you have any feedback for how or when we conduct buys again in the future, or if you have not received your refund within a week, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Grain bulk buy announcement:
Due to a slow pick up on the Gladfields grain buy, the closing date will be extended to COB Friday 2nd March.
SABC Club members can purchase grain from the SABC shop on a first come first served basis at https://shop.sabrew.com/
Non club members on the SABC Facebook group may participate if a minimum of 40 Sacks (1 pallet) is not achieved by Club members alone. If you are not an SABC Club member, register your interest to purchase by emailing the club at email@example.com
Please jump on board and support the buy
The program for this year’s Good Beer Wheaty has been released, see below for the program and links to the ticketing site. Once again the team at the Wheaty have put together an interesting program, backed up no doubt with some cracking beers. In what is becoming a (very welcome) tradition, Jade has very kindly offered a free pint to SABC members who purchase a ticket to one of the paid events. To take advantage of this offer, you must email the club not less than 24 hours before the event. We will then email the Wheaty with a list of attending members, which will be behind the bar on the day. Note that this offer is only available to financial members.

We have reached our pallet quantity, so the bulk buy is now closed and going ahead.
If you have signed up, you will receive an email shortly with your order summary and payment instructions.
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.
We are offering the discounted subscription to BYO Magazine again. Unfortunately, due to increased postage costs and the crappy exchange rate, the cost has gone up to $55.00 for a one year subscription. This still represents a saving of about $13.00 over a standard subscription delivered to Australia if you subscribed direct to the magazine. The magazine offers this deal to clubs as a fundraiser, so we get to keep a portion of the fee to put towards funding club activities. A win-win! Click here and fill out the form if you would like to take up the offer.
The program for Good Beer Wheaty has been announced, and once again it looks to promise four days and nights of interesting discussion, celebrity shoulder-rubbing and of course great beer.
And once again, in what we consider to be an extremely fine tradition, SABC members who purchase a ticket to one of the ticketed events will receive pint of beer on the Wheaty! To take advantage of this, you need to email us to let us know what sessions you are attending at least two days prior to the first one. We will then forward a list of names to the Wheaty the day before each event.

It’s been almost a month since I last badgered you about BeerBQ RSVPs, and that means the event is almost upon us. We are now getting to the pointy end of organising things, so the sooner we have a good idea of numbers the better. No one wants to to see us running out of food…
Don’t forget that this is a fund-raising event for the club, so tell your workmates and friends if you think they would enjoy a night of Beer, BBQ and Bowls. There will be an informal Beer of the Night vote, with points towards Brewer Of The Year, and we are also working on another surprise “entertainment” (no, not that…).
We would like RSVPs back by two weeks before the event to give us the best chance of getting the catering right. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are coming along, and don’t forget to tell us if you are bringing a keg (or bottles).
Click here for (slightly) more info about the event.
We don’t yet have enough takers for the Brew Your Own magazine offer to be able take advantage of the club discount price. The cost will be US$40, and for that you get 8 issues delivered, with half the money going back to our club. We would obviously like to make this work, so if you were thinking of taking up the offer, please email the club at email@example.com.
The BYO Magazine subscription offer that some of our members took up last year is just about to expire. Those taking part will likely receive their last magazine this week.
We will be contacting BYO to take up the club offer again, so if you would like to take advantage of this offer please email the club at firstname.lastname@example.org . There will be more info forthcoming once we have heard back from the magazine, but in essence they offer a subscription at a reduced rate over the standard price, the best part being that your club gets to keep half. This money can then get put back into other member benefits.
