Some rapid-fire news (it won’t take long to read Matt Johns!).
One: The bus tour of Southern Vales breweries is almost sold out and due to a cancellation, we’ve got four seats left. The tour is this Saturday and will take you to Goodieson Brewery to meet head brewer Jeff, Shifty Lizard Brewing Co and meet head brewer Lee, Forktree Brewing to meet head brewer Ben and then lunch in the restaurant overlooking Carickalinga and then South Coast Brewing Co where you will meet brewers Scott, Mark and Brett. $30 for a 9.45am start. Return to The Wheaty by 5.45 where you can kick on at Thebartonia. We won’t be doing another one in the near future so be quick! Book via the shop. You must log in https://shop.sabrew.com/product-category/events/
Two: Our next regular monthly meeting is having a date change. It will be THURSDAY 21 February at Little Bang Brewing. Unfortunately, they’re not open on Wednesdays and unlike when they were smaller, can’t make exceptions for homebrewing mates. The Wheaty is also busy with Fringe events.
Bring your summer competition entries but we won’t be judging them on the night.
We’ll get a backstage tour of the new brewery and other plans are still being worked out. Watch for emails and the event on Facebook but just note the date change now.
Three: The summer competition entry portal is now open. It’s found from the competitions page on the site or at https://comps.sabrew.com/ – you need to log in etc…
Drop off is at the February meeting unless you organise something with us before with an email.
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
Unit 5, 21 Naweena road Regency Park.
(Note this is the brewery and tap room, not the Semaphore Cafe)
There will be a burger food truck from 6pm, so bring a few dollars for some tukka.
Tasting are welcome, please indicate if you have something to bring along by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Previous communication about this Saturday’s BeerBQ has stated the INCORRECT address. Please accept our apologies for this mix up. The correct address below:
Colonel Light Gardens Bowling Club
Reade Park Reserve, Flinders Ave
Colonel Light Gardens, SA 5041
This address also appears on your eventbrite ticket.
Please register to attend before end of day tomorrow (Wednesday 2nd May) by following the link on the previous post.

Looking forward to seeing you all then!
The AGM this year will be held this Saturday July 15th, starting at 12.00pm sharp, out the back at the Wheaty.
See this post for more details on the committee positions, and remember to renew your membership prior to the AGM to be eligible to vote.
See you there!
Tonight’s meeting is in the dining room, which makes setting up a screen that everyone can see a little tricky, particularly if we have a good turnout. As such, please see the link below to download a pdf of the presentation, which you can view on your device during the talk, or print out. We will also have some printed copies available.
See you tonight!
Unfortunately for us (and Pirate Life), the council has temporarily withdrawn approval for licensed events along that section of South Road, citing safety concerns due to the road works. This means we are not able to buy beer to drink on the premises (i.e. over the bar), and we are not able to have the food truck on premises. This would have made for a rather dreary event, so the committee has decided to postpone until November. We have been assured that by then everything will be back to normal.
Keep an eye out for further news, as we will be trying to lock in a date in the next week or so.
The AGM is this coming Saturday the 23rd of July, starting at 1pm sharp out the back at the Wheaty.
Attached to this post are the agenda for the AGM, as well as the minutes of the last AGM.
At the AGM, all committee positions will be declared vacant, and any financial member is eligible to nominate for a role on the committee. There are four club officers: President, Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary. There are also up to four general committee members, one of which this year we are specifically targeting as a development officer. This role is essentially to build relationships between the club and potential sponsors and the brewing community generally. Anyone who wishes to nominate for a position can send an email, or nominate on the day.
Another (final, I promise) reminder that to be eligible to vote at the AGM, you must be a financial member.
We hope to see as many members there as possible, and don’t for get the Winter Competition judging is straight after the AGM.
