As we crash headlong to year’s end and as we had to postpone our club regular events, we’ve jumped on Sunday, November 22 for a pre-Christmas-crazy- season-end-of-year-rerun-postponed-winter-BeerBQ!
Just like our 2019 Christmas event, it’ll be a summer ‘lite’ version of BeerBQ on Sunday, Nov 22, from 1 pm – 5 pm at the Prospect Petanque Club, 14 – 32 Buchanan Street, Nailsworth. It’s a fantastic little place under shady trees in the middle of a park between Main North Rd and Galway Ave.
Like BeerBQ, we’ll put on the food and you guys bring your beer. Because of COVID-19 restrictions, we need to serve beers from a single bar setup. We plan to roster on three or four beers at a time with shared bartending. We also need to use a single glass per beer and have them washed in between.
We still get to celebrate our brewing skills and, like BeerBQ, we welcome members to bring their beer to share in bottles or kegs. Ww’ll have a couple of jockey boxes to switch kegs through or byo keg set up. Bottles welcome and this set up means bottles won’t get as lost as they usually do.
There’s petanque to be played as well. This is a family-friendly event and we welcome you to invite your partner and kids. There’s a playground nearby and they can play petanque and run around on the pistes too.
Being a club subsidised event, there is no cost to members or family. This time it’s not an event for friends and other non-members. Beer is BYO but wine and soft drinks need to be bought from the club bar.
We need your help. If you’re able to help set-up or pack up, help cook the BBQ (even just half an hour), bartend. Also occasionally collect glassware and put it in the glasswasher.
If you want to bring something along to eat like snacks or a salad please let us know. We need to have a single server. We appreciate the help (and the committee also wants to relax and enjoy ourselves too).
The venue is great and as you can understand, convincing a club to let us come along and drink beer is a challenge but the Petanque club have been understanding and loved us as guests last year.

Club meeting: (financial members) This Wednesday, Oct 21 at Pirate Life. Facebook Event.
his month, we’re talking about brewing sours at home. Both Clint and Lachlan will have a chat to us about their most recent adventures into brewing sours, share recipes and tips, and have some sours to share.
Bring along any questions you have if you’ve ever thought of venturing into this space – it can be daunting but maybe not as challenging as you thought!
BOTTLE BINGO! Each and every meeting.
Yeah, baby, it’s on! Bring one bottle or many to swap with fellow members! A great way to taste some sensational beers (and clear out that stock of your own bottles). Label it or be mysterious.
**Also, please adhere to the current COVID regulations while at Pirate Life – only SEATED drinking is permitted inside (at the time of writing this) and there may be some regulations on numbers. Wash your hands!**
