Is hydrogen part of a sustainable energy future?

There’s a lot to like about hydrogen. For starters, it’s abundant. Hydrogen can store excess renewable power. When liquified, it’s more energy intense than fossil alternatives. In a fuel cell, it can generate electricity. When it’s burned, the only by-product is water.

Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Killer Crocs!

When I was 18, to rebel against the world my parents had created, I shaved a half Mohawk, encouraged my hair to stand on end, grew my armpit hair, wore torn black rags, too much eyeliner and wore 18-hole Dr. Martens boots. These days, to give their parents the shits, the kids are wearing Crocs. With socks. They’re going for comfort.

Champagne!

Champagne lovers, it’s time for the final Byron Bay Champagne Club event of the year, at which club members will luxuriate under the canopy of the Rainforest Verandah at The Byron at Byron, with delectable food prepared by their new executive chef Minh Le, matched to the incredible champagnes of Champagne Collet.

Everyone is welcome! You don’t actually need to be a member to join the event, but membership is free – why not join? You can do that at www.byronbaychampagneclub.com. 

On the night, you can expect five glasses of champagne of five different types, all from Champagne Collet.

Your champagnes will be matched to a four-course dinner by the chefs at The Byron at Byron, and you can also expect an entertaining education about champagne in general and, more specifically, those produced by Champagne Collet.

Since 1921, Maison Collet has been creating distinctive champagnes that appeal to a clientele of demanding wine connoisseurs in search of authentic, elegant and refined champagnes. Established in Aÿ, in the heart of the Champagne region, Maison Collet uses primarily Premier and Grand Crus in its wines in order to reflect the diversity of the Champagne terroirs.

Champagne Collet is a gastronomic wine and every cuvée has been created to complement various fine dining and fine drinking experiences, whether served as an aperitif or paired with the most sophisticated of dishes.

Byron Bay Champagne Club (BBCC) co-founder Remy Tancred (founder of Sample Food Events) is working closely with the Byron at Byron team to create a sensational four-course dinner to be matched to five of these ultra-premium champagnes. You will be hosted for this exquisite event by the other BBCC co-founder, and fabulous lady of wine, Jane Thomson (of The Fabulous Ladies’ Wine Society) and also by Antrim Dalton, Australian Sales Director for Champagne Collet.

Friday 1 November 6.30pm.
At Byron at Byron. Tickets: byronbaychampagneclub.com
