***Entries closed - GOOD LUCK to our SA entrants!!***
Once again SABSOSA will send entries to AABC on behalf of eligible entrants. Category winners and place getters from SABSOSA 2015 are strongly encouraged to bring along their bottles, entry forms and payment to the trophy presentation on 20th September. If you unable to make the presentation then please contact SABSOSA at firstname.lastname@example.org by 18th September to make alternative drop off arrangements with a committee member. If these arrangements do not suit then eligible entrants will need to get their entries to Canberra by themselves (please notify email@example.com if this is the case)
Fill out the entry form on the AABC website for each entry and bring your fee of $10 per entry (Cash or Cheques made payable to QAAWBC Inc)
We need to get as many entries as possible to compete at AABC. In 2013 SA just missed out on taking out the best state award. Unfortunately not all eligible SABSOSA brewers were able to enter their beers for various reasons. The first port of call for entry information is always the SABSOSA committee via firstname.lastname@example.org . Your emails will always be answered and bottle drop offs can be arranged around Adelaide. Oh yeah and if you think you have made a cracker of a beer then make sure you stash an extra one away for the AABC. Winning SABSOSA with your last bottle is great but winning at AABC with your last bottle would be even better!!!
