Overall South Australia came equal 2nd as the best brewing state! This is a fantastic result and shows that the SA amateur brewing scene is improving with the quality of beer being produced and the standard of judging.

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 email@example.com . 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!!!

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.
