Malt to be won

We have 3 bags of malt to give away at the AGM, we will be having a lucky draw. So if you want a chance to win, come to the meeting.

Beer & Boerie Fest

This September we will be holding our first annual Beer & Boerie Festival. Details are still being ironed out, but it will be held on September 16th, at the Farmers market in Hillcrest.

There will be a best beer competition with generous prizes, so there is just enough time to brew something, so any member who wants to show some of their beer to the public, be sure to bring it along. There will be a cover charge per brew table, and some proceeds will go to charity and ECB funding for further events and club activities.

Further information will be provided at a later date. Be sure to be at the next ECB general meeting on the 22nd August as more details will be discussed then.

We hope to make this an annual festival attracting more brewers and stiffer competition!
