SFA National Small Business Award for Eight Degrees

SFA Chairman AJ Noonan and Cam. And some beer.

The brewers are going to the ball! To the The SFA National Small Business Awards 2013 tomorrow night, to be precise.

We were thrilled to learn that Eight Degrees is one of two winners, and the only food business, in the Emerging New Business category, which recognises emerging entrepreneurs who have businesses established for less than two years.

Hard to believe that we’re only coming up to our second birthday in April, which we will be celebrated with our annual pilgrimage to the Franciscan Well Easterfest on 30 and 31 March.

While the lads were delighted to get news of the award, they were a little perturbed when the invitation to the event specified a dress code of Cocktail Dress. Now, I don’t know if you’ve ever seen a pair of brewers trussed up in little black dresses, but suffice it to say that it’s an entertaining, if not altogether pleasant, sight. Fortunately, to spare us all, a follow-up email from the SFA clarified the situation with a link to www.dresscodeguide.com.

Keeping that site’s advice in mind, and being careful not to “upstage the hostess”, we’ve all found something to wear for Thursday and are very much looking forward to the night.
