Amateur Brewing Championship Of South Australia

ABCSA, formerly known as SABSOSA, has been South Australia’s premier amateur brewing competition since 1997.

ABCSA, as well as being South Australia’s largest amateur competition is also the qualifying round for the Australian Amateur Brewing Championship (AABC) where all 1st, 2nd and 3rd places in ABCSA categories judged are given the chance to enter in the Australian national competition (AABC).

There are great prizes for participants who take a place as well as the chance to win South Australia’s brewer of the year perpetual trophy.

As they are related, ABCSA refers to the AABC Style Guidelines maintained and published on the AABC website.
