January Meeting (and competition)

January 24, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

It’s time for another meeting and CAMPERVAN BREWERY is our guest speaker!

24th January is the biggie on the Scottish Craft Brewers calendar with our biggest meeting and our annual competition colliding into one fantastic day out.

This year we’re meeting at;

Andrew Ushers & Co
32b West Nicolson Street, Edinburgh EH8 9DD

We have the downstairs area just for us so just come down and ask for Scottish Craft Brewers to get the best seats in the house.The meeting runs from 12 noon, but if you are submitting beer for the competition, please be there at 11:30 to submit it. The judges will have a lot of beer to judge and so the poor boys have to start early – it’s a hard life being a beer judge.

Food will be available from the bar as well as a wide array of fantastic beer (and we get discount).

What to expect on the day

Paul Gibson the founder of Campervan Brewery is coming along to chat to us about his unique brewery and answer your questions on his set up, how he got started and anything else that peaks your interest.
Corny Kegs for homebrew
Eli is going to stumble and stutter her way through a chat on corny kegs and homebrew.So if you have any questions about corny kegs, gas, regulators etc, come along and see how Eli does it (wrongly probably).
Beer and Food Pairing
Gordon is going to have another go at convincing us that he really is a trained chef!Wondered what beer goes best with that burger? Gordon will tell us all.

American Wheat – People’s Choice

This year for the first time we will be having a category which will be judged completely by the folk in attendance on the day.The American Wheat Beer entries  will be available for attendees to taste and then vote for their favourite. The beer scoring the highest vote will be crowned the People’s Choice.

Problem Corner

Have niggling issues when you brew?
Got a burning question you want the answer to?
Has Gordon tainted your yeast too?

Problem corner is your solution – email us your questions and we’ll do our best to get answers for you and talk you through them at the meeting.

The small stuff

As always non members are more than welcome at our meetings although we do charge a measly £2 to non members as an entry fee so bring the wife/husband/significant other and make a day out of it.


We expect the competition winners to be announced roughly between 3:30 and 4pm.

More info on the competition, how to enter, categories etc from the website below.
