Presentation – Intro to Brewing Water v2.2 by Eric Cousineau

This month our very own President Eric Cousineau will be presenting his annual "Intro to Brewing Water v2.2" where we take a deep dive into the effects of water chemistry.

Bi-Monthly Homebrew Bottle Swap

We are moving the bottle swap to bi-monthly to concentrate demand. Just bring 6 bottles of your homebrew, and drop them off with Emily at the sign in desk. At the end of the meeting you'll have 6 assorted bottles of homebrew to bring home! No sign-up necessary!
