The conference will be held at Adelaide Festival Centre and Town Hall, walking distance from each other. The event is quite close to the city tram service and Adelaide railway station.

The Adelaide Festival Centre, Australia's first multi-purpose arts centre, was built in 1973 and opened three months before the Sydney Opera House. The Festival Centre is located approximately 50 metres north of the corner of North Terrace and King William Street, lying near the banks of the River Torrens and adjacent to Elder Park.

Adelaide Festival Centre is South Australia’s principal performing arts venue and presenter of theatre, dance, music and exhibitions. It is a leading Asia Pacific cultural centre.

Barry Morgan, the ultimate organ salesman, will grace the ANHC gala dinner with live performance.

Barry has sold out live shows including Melbourne Comedy Festival, Sydney Comedy Festival, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth Fringe, the famous Spiegeltent and more.

He's keen as mustard to share the ‘joy of the organ’ in what stands to be one hell of an evening.

F.A.Q. You have questions. We have answers.

What is the ANHC conference?

It's an event which is, hands down, the greatest homebrewing conference in Australia. 2016 will be the fifth ANHC, and the 2nd time the event has been held outside Melbourne – in Adelaide, South Australia. All previous conferences have been sold out, receiving overwhelmingly positive feedback from delegates and sponsors alike!

Where is the conference located?

Adelaide Festival Centre King William St, Adelaide SA 5000

When is the event?

Thursday October 13th - Saturday October 15th, 2016

Does ANHC 2016 have accommodation partners?

No. Please use an online interactive map and accommodation resources to identify the abundance of CBD options near the event locations. For convenience, look for accommodation either on North Tce or near the city Tram Line which goes through the CBD along King William St and North Tce. This covers probably 75% of the CBD options. North Adelaide is a lovely 15min walk past the Adelaide Oval and up the hill with numerous options, also.

What is the ANHC objective?

•    Raise awareness of homebrewing.
•    Share brewing knowledge and experience.
•    Provide inspiration, ideas and motivation for brewers.
•    Improve the quality of Australian homebrewed beer.
•    Build relationships within the Australian homebrewing and brewing community.

Was anyone seriously hurt at the 2014 Canberra club night?

While, "I told you, no real throwing stars" was overheard a time or six, and real hand-guilded swords were spotted in the wild, no one was injured, not even in the slightest. Our Australian homebrew collective is proof that vikings, pirates, golfers, beach bums, and weird men with foil caps and antlers can peacefully co-exist in the love of beer. The bagpiper nearly had his ass kicked, however. club night bag pipez
