    The AABC site (http://aabc.org.au/) has gone down again :(

    Does anyone know who the contacts are so this can be fixed?

    The AABC guidelines are required by those entering the Grafton Brewing Comp, and while an alternate link can be setup, I think it would be good if these were available from the official site.

    Remember, only 16 days until entries close (on the 6th April 2018) - less if you are using an out of area a drop off point.

    From what we have heard, we have all sorts of beer styles coming in, as well as non beer & 'brew foods' entries.

    Still only $2 entry fee per entry!

    Drop off points (with closing dates) can be found here: https://graftonbrewingcompetition.com/drop-off-points/

    Entries have already come in from all over Australia, but if you are a local it is not too late to enter. Drop in your bottles to the Grafton Show Office today.

    Thanks to everyone that has made the effort to get their entries in, and good luck with your entries.

    Yes , thanks Matt for all your effort in getting it up and running each year. Am I allowed to gloat that both my Tropical Stout and Belgian Blond scored equal high score, making me a Double Grand Champ? Catch you next year.
