First things first...
Will I need a car?
Not during the conference. The William Angliss Institute is located in the Melbourne CBD right next to a Tram Stop and in walking distance to Southern Cross and Flagstaff Stations. Skybus has regular services from Tullamarine and Avalon Airports to the City
How does the Australian Amateur Brewing Championship (AABC) fit in?
The judging for 2022 AABC will be held on Thursday at the William Angliss Institute.
Is there a Welcome Reception?
Yes, it will be held on Thursday evening at Deeds Brewing Glen Iris so you might need to plan your travel accordingly. It will include the AABC Awards.
Is there a dress code?
Well sort of; socks and sandals are forbidden; other than that your favourite T-shirt and relaxed garb is fine.
Will glassware be provided?
Yes. A commemorative glass is provided for each attendee, and a conference beer to christen it!
Who will present at this year's conference?
The list is many and varied. Please see our full list of conference speakers.
What are the presentations and topics available this year?
Will there be an option to attend virtually?
No, we are all looking forward to a full person to person event. However, we encourage you to reference our Terms and Conditions which references format of conference changed to virtual including health and safety and canellation policy.
Will there be beer?
Some of the talks will have beer/mead/cider included. Breakout sessions like Morning Tea and Lunch will included a variety of freshly tapped kegs from our beer sponsors which attendees can certainly enjoy.
I’ve been brewing for 0-50 years, will I learn anything at the talks?
We certainly hope so with talks aimed at all levels of brewing knowledge.
If there is a speaker who has written a book that you are contemplating purchasing, it will likely be available for sale at the conference and there is a good chance you could get it signed.
If you already own a copy, feel free to bring it. Authors love adding their illegible dedication and scribble to their books.
