Welcome to GTA Brews, Toronto’s local homebrew club!
We are an enthusiastic group of people that love to make beer, mead, and cider at home! Our goal is to help our members learn how to make the best beer/mead/cider possible! We run events, competitions, bulk buys, and lots more.

Eric Cousineau presents: Intro to BJCP Certification
This April we are going back to our gracious host, Northern Maverick Brewing Co.. Thanks for hosting us! This month the “Hoppy Hour” Snack Menu will be available to our members! We request that everyone spend some money to support our wonderful host. Their food is fantastic (try the Jamaican patties), and they have plenty of beer-to-go in their bottle shop!

Our popular seasonal homebrew competition is back for 2019! As usual, we will be accepting all styles of beer, mead, and cider. Since this is our small competition, entry will be restricted to GTA Brews members only.
This seasonal competition is designed to be a “low stakes” introduction to BJCP competitions for club members to enter their beers for feedback and fun. The focus is on providing excellent feedback, so we keep the entry cap and fee low. Our hope is that lots of first-time entrants will find themselves on the winners list and be motivated to continue entering competitions. This competition will be judged by BJCP Judges according to the 2015 BJCP Guidelines.
If you’ve been waiting for the opportunity to get your hands on club t-shirts, now is your chance! Between Mar 30th and Apr 11th, you can pre-order your very own GTA Brews club t-shirt! Visit the club Swag Shop to order.

For those that missed it, Monday night (March 11th) was the judging of round 4 of Last Brewer Standing. There was shock, there was awe, there was glory! Well, at least I imagine so. I wasn’t there to witness it. Anyways, here were the results:
Spent 35 years in the Office furniture industry, Since 2014 I’ve been working with SceneAereo Aerial Photography, we’ve done some very interesting projects over the last year including commercial real estate, construction site progress and building thermal inspections.
What got you into homebrewing?
Started making wine, getting my juice from Magnotta.
Saw their beer wort kits tried a couple of those then discovered all grain and haven’t looked back.
