Do they do tent sites ? Hoping to visit for the day/night :icon_cheers:
Thx for the link 99, good deals!
12k`s might just be outside staggering distance for me pmash :icon_drunk: , catch up for a beer though.Hey haysie , I have been camped at the Marong caravan and cabin park for the last few months and have no hesitations suggesting an ensuite cabin may suit your needs.
About 12 k's out of town keeps you out of the rat race and away from those annoying rellies :icon_chickcheers: nice , friendly park too!
Call in (fifth wheeler down the back) and I'll shout you a brew , 4 kegs on tap, no waiting :icon_cheers:
Solidarity Justin. I'm all for helping Bendigo (and 'districts') to build up a better beer & brewing culture.Hi Guys,
Justin McPhail here - thought i'd see if there was any interest happening on the internet regarding the event - good to see there is!
So far we have had 19 entries, a fairly diverse range with some surprising 'mad' brews! Just what I was hoping for!

Will stop the shameless self promotion now
Bottled this last night and it's a cracker. No infection worries at all. My wife even liked it when she drank some flat out the fermentor, which is saying something.I think I may have had a mild brett (or similar) infection in my starter that I just pitched into the Rye IPA I brewed for this competition. After pitching I smelled the starter and while it doesn't smell terrible, there's definitely something off there.
I used the same stock of 1272 from my fridge as my last IPA that also had a mild infection, which I put down to using an old hop sock to filter the beer when pouring from the cube (It was the first time I had done so and I thought boiling this would sanitise this sufficiently but after reading the yeast book, realised this is not sufficient). I now think the infection may be in the stubbies of 1272 I have in the fridge. The shame about it is that I thought it was time to refresh my 1272 with a new smack pack but G&G had sold out so I kept using my current stock.
I'll just have to wait and see...
Awesome! I've just moved to Bendigo and couldn't agree more.If you guys are on facebook - check out the Facebook Group 'Better Beer for Bendigo'

It was Tracy from BAD club that took out the big prize, but I'm pretty sure it was an English Brown Ale. It was a great beer. I missed the announcement of the winner as I had to get our little boy home but I'm told my Irish Red took out the people's choice award. I was surprised as I thought Tracy's English Brown and Cameron's American brown were both better than mine. Still anything can happen with people's choice...What a great afternoon. 25 out 26 beers where all decent. The big winner was an American Brown Ale. Made by a great lady brewer from Echuca.
Great to, meet other AHB members.
The publican keen to have another comp in another 2 months..
I brewed a Munich Dunkel on the weekend in preparation for the next one! It's in the cube ready to go in the fermentor.Thanks for the feedback guys!
To clarify a few things:
There will be another competition in about 2-3 months time, we are in the process of organising a bigger venue (due to the amount of people who turned up).
There are more 'beer related' events in the pipeline for Bendigo. The aim is to have some satellite events in conjunction with Good Beer Week next year - I believe Bendigo is up to the challenge!
Zac will be brewing some more beers for the next event, stay tuned - he's quite a talent!
Sorry I don't get on here enough, juggling work, uni and beer (although beer is the genuine priority!). As Beer66 posted (thanks!), there's a link to a newsletter (http://t.co/a3I0tgY) we are planning on making a regular thing, so if you want to get in touch, feel free to join
