SABC goes FERAL!

Thanks to Feral being as incredibly popular as they are, we got bumped! On July 16th, our normal monthly meeting night, The Wheaty are hosting a ‘Meet the Brewer’ night with Brendan Varis from Feral from 6pm until 8pm. Our Members meeting on July 16th will be held from 8PM in the back room at The Wheaty, rather than the normal 7pm.

This is a great chance for members to come along and meet one of the brewers of Australia’s favourite craft beers, Hop Hog. As an extra bonus, SABC members who come along to the event (ticket purchase required $20 + booking fee), and pre-register with SABC, will receive a free pint of beer courtesy of The Wheaty.

You must contact the club BEFORE COB Tuesday 15th of July to register to receive your free pint, and you must pay for a ticket to the Feral event! Don’t roll up unannounced looking for a free pint!

Meeting topic will be Basic Kegging techniques, with a reduced amount of tastings due to the time restrictions.

Winter Dark Beers competition results

Our Winter Dark beer brewing competition has been run and done! There was a good selection of beers from a range of styles including Robust and Baltic Porters, Schwartzbiers and of course Stouts of all persuasions.

Entry numbers were good, and the overall quality of entries was excellent!

Congratulations to Matt Kennedy for winning Best of Show and Dark Lagers with his Schwartzbier, and Greg Wieder for winning Porters with his Robust Porter and Other with his Oatmeal Stout.
