On the 17th of March, Proud Mary Coffee Roasters will host the 2016 Australian AeroPress Championship. On the night, Australia’s best brewers will be stirring, steeping and pressing coffee generously supplied by Condesa and roasted by the punks at PMC.

Inspired by the Thunderdome of Mad Max, there’ll be beers, industrial disco balls, heaps of food (unlike the Thunderdome), a DJ in full Mad Max dress (not conformed) and, no doubt, some crazy revellers (confirmed), but weirdly the original Mad Max, Mel Gibson, declined the offer to MC.

There have been 4 regional competitions across Australia, and the top 3 place getters have automatic entry to the AACs. There will be some wildcard entrants too – keep an eye on the PMC social medias for updates. The ultimate champion will win a trip to Dublin to compete for the World AeroPress Championship. If you placed in the top 3 in the state competitions, please get in touch with Lisa at Proud Mary to secure your place – if for some reason, you’re unable to make it to Melbourne to compete, you are allowed to use a ‘surrogate’ competitor to compete in your place.

Save March 17th in your diary, and avoid other dull corporate MICE events, for a night celebrating belter brews and high-speed car chases through the desert. Bring your own sand. Party is on and all are welcome!
