The guys behind Just Brewing Co. have just announced South Africa's first beer bootcamp taking place on the 4th of July. This full day beer indaba is aimed at craft beer fans and home brewers and it will be a great place to network with fellow craft beer enthusiasts.
This full day conference is taking place at the Birchwood Hotel in Boksburg and will feature a packed agenda aimed with everything from recipe formulation and trends, to maintaining your own yeast culture at home. The highlight of the conference is without a doubt the keynote John Palmer, author of the "home brewers bible" How to Brew. This one is certainly not to be missed.
