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.
- if you have an ANHC ticket, your name will be on a LIST.
- Deeds is the place. 4 Paran Place, Glen Iris. Right next to the Glen Iris train station: remember you can have more beers if you don't drive
- 5:30 is doors open, friendly faces at the ready, glasses ready to pour. Say hi and thanks to all the judges and stewards who've been making the Nationals possible
- be there by seven for presentations please!
- and have an amazing night!
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.
What is an Adjunct Session?
An Adjunct is a side-session or bonus session that will run along-side the existing conference schedule to provide diversity and choice in our conference programming.
For more information see Adjucts.
Can I buy a ticket to an Adjunct Session, only?
No. It is a condition of your entry to any adjunct session that you hold a validly purchased ticket to that adjunct session AND a validly purchased Premium Package ticket or a validly purchased Basic Package ticket. Any adjunct session tickets purchased in the name of an individual who has not also purchased a Premium Package ticket or a Basic Package ticket will be cancelled and the adjunct session ticket cost will be refunded at our discretion.
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.
