Hi guys......I am staging a mult-beverage event in Queensland...at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre on July 23 and 24 of this year. Shout! is a tasting event which means a single entry fee allows you to sample as much as you can....We already have a big range of exhibitors from beer to wine spirits, liqueurs, coffee, tea etc etc.

I have organised the National Festival of Beers in Brisbane for the last ten years or so and we have managed to get a good variety of Aussie brews there (190 last year)....with this event we are going international as well....so, we expect a pretty good range for the visitor.

A long story short here we are having all sorts of talks, sessions etc. on all sorts of beverages and on all aspects of them...we have Tequila sessions, Vodka University, Whisky appreciation, wine and food matching and beer and food etc....and I would really like to develop some homebrew clinics.

We will have Chuck Hahn, Brad Rogers from Matilda Bay, Eric Walters from Grand Ridge plus brewers from Monteith's, Trumer, Boag's, Coopers and a heap more!

I would like anyone from Homebrew associations, businesses etc. who may be interested to contact me regarding putting on these clinics...and if we can organise any associations to get on board then I will do a substantial discount for members......anyone interested or who has info or contacts please give me an email....Cheers :beer: .

Thanks for the post....entry will be $25.00 and good value at that.......we should have about 150+ beers, 200 + wines and more than a 100 spirits and liqueurs etc....and the good thing is noone is doing mainstream beers and products....so the show is all craft, premium and imported.

and after the tasting is done we have the "World Bar" next door where most of the beverages on display will be for sale for "real" drinks.

Don't suppose you have any homebrew contacts down this way who can help me out?

I think there are a couple of strong HB clubs in the brissy area. I'd give them a call.

Try this link and look at teh clubs section.

http://www.craftbrewer.org/

Also check the radio show section. A couple of guys do, (or used to do) a HB radio show from Townsville. Very keen craft brewers. Maybe worth a call.

hope this helps.

Shout05,

I suggest you call David Kitchen, of Brewers Choice (07 32768500). He would probably be interested in setting up a stall and doing a clinic. Although you probably already know him, as he set up a stall at last years NFOB.

Cheers - Snow.

thanks again

No worries.

As a matter of interest, are you getting in any hard to get American craftbrews for tasting? Such as Stone Brewing, Sierra Nevada, Anchor, etc?

Snow.....mate I wish!!....do what we can with a pretty good range...actually excellent range by most standards of bev. shows in Australia...but this is our first year around.......our aim is to be the showcase of all the world's great product within a few years...not just the big company beers but to have an event that brings in the whole spectrum.....and man!! the States and Canada alone would be a huge exhibition......We are such a big beer drinking nation, my belief is that sooner or later we will all want and appreciate good beers......even demand them!!......got to have a vision in life!

well...U could start ur own, or travel to the Gold Coast instead of Bali, this year.
Apart from that, I'm certain that U could be a guest speaker/ demo dude when they inevitably get to you on the national tour.

Wouldn't it be great if it toured in perpetuity?

I went, was too pissed to remember most of it...

I do remember however I was expecting a bigger range and all but 2 or 3 stands couldn't tell me what was in the beers. (mostly sales people)

Saying this I still had a good time.
