The AHA sent Steve Parr down to little old Adelaide to check out the ANHC (he is the Vice President), and as part of that they have extended a discount offer to Australian home brewers wishing to join the AHA.
Use activation code AUS15 in the activation code field at www.homebrewersassociation.org/digital to receive a discounted membership.
In addition to saving 15%, a digital AHA membership includes the benefits of a traditional AHA membership with a digital copy of Zymurgy delivered via email or the eZymurgy app, instead of a mailed printed copy.
The committee will be meeting this Thursday November 3rd, at 7pm at the King’s Head. Any member is welcome to attend committee meetings, however please shoot us an email if you intend coming along so we can make time in the agenda.
Ok, we’re back on track for our Pirate Life event, finally. The roadworks have finished on that part of South Road, allowing free access for emergency services for those who have had too much pizza and beer!
The date is Sunday November 27th, starting at 12.30pm.
We will kick off with a brewery tour (and a pint), with lunch starting from 1.30pm. There will be wood oven pizzas (vegetarian available), bruschetta and garlic bread served until 3.30pm. We will have a raffle, and there will be a prize for the best pirate themed accessory or clothing. We will also be announcing the Brewer of the Year.
Cost for non-members is $20.00 per person.
For catering numbers, please let us know if you are coming along, either by indicating so on the facebook event or the old fashioned way by emailing email@example.com.
SABSOSA result have been posted (in record time – good work guys). Congratulations to all place-getters, and particularly to SABC members, who are well represented.
Check the full results here. Note that the BOTY leaderboard has been taken down until the announcement and presentation.
We currently have no tastings lined up for the next meeting. If you have a beer you would like some constructive feedback on, or even if you just want to show off, send us an email and bring it along.
You will need three longnecks or equivalent, and your recipe and brew day notes.
As you are aware, we need brewers to brew for Club Night. In an effort to keep it all in one place, we have created a web form for brewers to submit their info. Even if you have told a committee member that you are brewing, please take a minute to fill out the form so we know what we are getting and from whom. We still need more brewers, so if you think you have some spare bandwidth in your brewing schedules, please help out.
The form is here.
ANHC 5 in Adelaide is looming ever closer, and the conference team are seeking some enthusiastic volunteers who are keen to lend a hand during the event. If you’d like to be a part of the team and assist with things like processing registrations, moving kegs, pouring/serving beers and whatever other important tasks are required to make the event a success, please email Lachlan via firstname.lastname@example.org
These aren’t requirements, but it would help us to know:
- what days are you available to help (13-15th October) ?
- are you capable of wrangling a 50L keg?
- are you attending any of the conference events?
- do you have an RSA certificate?
Congratulations and welcome to our newest member, Travis Campbell. What Travis’s wife didn’t know when she signed him up for Father’s Day, was that his membership means we can now boast that every place in all categories for the Gawler Show was taken out by an SABC member. Nice work people!
The BOTY leader board has now been updated, you can check it out here.
We are just about ready to order another batch of gear, so if you are interested in a t-shirt, polo or hoodie, now is the time to get your order in.
Please email the club by this Friday if you would like to take part. Clint will get back to you with costs and sizing guidelines.
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 BeerBQ is just one sleep away. A large amount of meat is currently soaking up smoky goodness on it’s low and slow journey to your plate, and beer is chilling in anticipation of gushing out a tap into your souvenir glass. Phew, I need a cold shower…
Anyway, here’s another funky embedded google map to show you how to get there. Kick off is at 6pm, and don’t forget to bring a bit of spare change for the raffle. See you there!
Just a quick reminder that membership renewals are now well and truly due, so if you are intending to remain a member (who wouldn’t, let’s be honest), please send your form to email@example.com or bring it along to the meeting on Wednesday, along with payment of course.
