Current Competition – Winter 2018

The club’s annual Winter Competition is open for entries now via our competitions page here.

The only categories being judged in this year’s competition are: Low Alcohol (1.), Brown Ale (7.), Wheat and Rye Ale (13.), Sour Ale (14.), Fruit/Spice/Herb/Vegetable Beer (17.). These are categories from the Aust. Amateur Brewing Championships (AABC) and can be found here.

If you have never entered a competition before, have a go. It just takes one bottle. It’s a great learning experience as well and beers brewed can also be entered into the State Amateur Brewing Competition (SABSOSA) in August.

Competition entries can be brought to the Wheaty on the night of the next meeting, July 18th, or by arrangement by emailing the Club. Judging will take place on the night and coincide with our AGM. Winners will be announced on the night.

Enter now.

SABC Club Brewer of the Year

Open to all SABC members, brewers who are awarded places at the nominated competitions in all categories will receive points.  The top point scorer after the last competition will be awarded the SABC Brewer Of The Year trophy. SABC competitions now attract more points (see below).  Note that as The Tanunda Show has chosen to exclude any brewers outside a 30km radius, this competition is no longer part of the Brewer of the Year tally.
