BABBs April: Pale Ales Mini Comp

This is the BABBs April metting, and Pale Ale mini-comp.

Mini-competitions are great for getting unbiased feedback, and learning about the judging process by participating. Members can win prizes, and go in the running to win the coveted Ernie Melville Most Consistent Brewer award.

BABBS meetings are held on the fourth Thursday of the month at the Coorparoo Bowls Club, Riddings St Coorparoo (upstairs). We start from 7pm, for a 7:30pm kick off to the meeting.

Pizzas are available from the Bowls Club kitchen downstairs, and there are a few decent beer options at the bar.

The club is close to Coorparoo Station, and the 222, 204, and 185 bus routes – all about 15 minutes travel from Roma St / City.

Guests are welcome, and can participate for the small fee of $5.

  • 5B Kolsch
  • 11B Best Bitter
  • 11C Strong Bitter
  • 12A British Golden Ale
  • 12B Australian Sparkling Ale
  • 18A Blonde Ale
