Bring your beer/brews to share
Remember, our meetings are all about brewing – which includes sampling. Bring your best in bottles, growlers or kegs, and remember you earn NOOKIE entry points for the annual prize draw.
Australian and multi-ACT champion brewer Lawfo will be taking us through the Czech Premium Pale Lager style – including his tips to brew a great one and a tasting! This is a really great opportunity to hear direct from one of the top brewers in the country. He’s also a top guy! Always a great source of advice or to discuss your latest brew.
This month’s 6-pack swap is looking good and can always do with more contributions! Last month had some huge numbers and huge beers so let’s keep that up. Our wonderful sponsor Mashematics has yet again thrown in 3 bags of malt to be drawn out and taken home by 3 lucky swappers. This month it’s 2kg of Gladfield American Ale, 1kg of Gladfield Brown and 1kg of Gladfield light crystal.
Just bring 6 of your brews and you’ll go home with a mixed 6 of beers made by your fellow club members. The more people we get the better, there isn’t a limit on the number of people who can take part and it’s a great way to get feedback for brewers of all abilities. Label your beers and post what you’re bringing on the forum https://www.canberrabrewers.com.au/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=8708&sid=ba937b2753bf4cc3cf5db8e026a36ef2
2021 Club Competition
Entries for the 2021 Club Competition are now open at https://canberrabrewers.com.au/clubcomp2021
Entries close 29 May (end of this month!) and judging dates will be 5-6 June.
The link above also has the option to volunteer as a judge and/or steward.
Further details will be posted on the forum but the club competition is a key feature of the brewing year. If you can judge or help out, or want to see what judging is like then definitely get involved.
We’ve got a variety of great prizes again in this month’s raffle, from our valued sponsors – more details on the night.
Did you know the club has a library? Well, it does! It’s an amazing resource of books about brewing, about beer, about cooking things to go with beer…really, there are heaps of books! Ask anyone in the committee or who looks like they’re in the know, or look it up on the forum.
Hoping to see you there on thursday or sometime soon! Cheers!
