Locals now have the chance to sample the best Central Queensland Brangus beef as Keppel Bay Sailing Club announces August is Beef Month.

Keppel Bay Sailing Club Manager Julie Strudwick said living in the beef capital of Australia, one of their passions is being able to serve the fantastic quality beef on offer from our local area.

“We have been fortunate enough to source beef from the 2017 Brangus Carcase Competition with cattle from stations throughout Central Queensland and the Central Highlands,” Ms Strudwick said.

Local breeders will be attending a beer and beef dinner at the Clubhouse on Friday 18 August with an expertly crafted two course meal, paired with craft beers and wines.

“Guests will have the chance to discuss with local breeders how their beef arrived from local paddock to plate,” she said.

“This is the second year of the Brangus Carcase Competition and last year the beef received rave comments.”

The cattle has been grass fed and 100 day grain fed in the feed lot and are finalists in the competition with winners being announced in conjunction with the Brisbane Exhibition.

All entries into the 2017 Brangus Carcase Competition will also be eligible for entry in the 2018 Beef Australia National Carcase Competition.

Local Brangus beef will be available for guests to enjoy at Keppel Bay Sailing Club throughout August with Meals of the Month available at both Clubhouse and The Spinnaker.
