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!

First time? Read our Monthly Meeting overview!

Bringing Beer to Share: There are usually 40+ people at each meeting so we recommend bringing at least 1L of your beer if you want everyone to try it. If you want detailed feedback on your beer, consider arriving by 7 PM to ensure you get a spot in the Structured Tasting. Don't forget your recipe notes!

Don’t forget to bring your tasting glass!
