Thinking of entering your beers in the ACT Championships? Give yourself the best chance of success and avoid some simple mistakes that could trip you up and cost your beers. Kurtz is handing over the mic this month and Gilks will run us all  through some easy tips and tricks to help present your beers for success.

2023 ACT Amateur Brewing Championships

Registration is open for the ACT Championships will be held on the weekend of 15-17 September. Not only does this competition decide the ACT Champion Brewer, but it’s also the basis for entry to the Australian Amateur Brewing Championship and all first place beers have the opportunity to be considered for the Bent Brewer (Beer of Show for the ACT Championships).

We usually have up to 300 entries and it’s a big weekend of judging – so please also register your availability to judge and steward over the Friday evening, Saturday and Sunday sessions.

We are aiming to hold the judging out at Zierholz Brewery in Fyshwick, but will confirm the venue and times closer to the weekend.

Contact the competition secretary at for questions or issues or clarifications.

2023 Oktoberfest

Oktoberfest is locked in for Thursday 12th Oktober, which means there will be no monthly meeting on the first Thursday of the month.

The invite will be coming out soon, when it does please RSVP early so we can cater appropriately. Cost is to be confirmed and non-members are welcome as usual, but they won’t get the Club subsidised price.

Don’t forget to bring your German-style beer for the annual Oktoberfest beer comp for the much sought after Canberra Brewers Oktoberfest Trophy.
