This June we are going back to our gracious host, Northern Maverick Brewing Co.. Thanks for hosting us! This month we have a special GTA Brews Menu that will be available to our members!

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!

Marcelo Paniza presents Brewing Sake.

Our very own  Marecelo Paniza from Paniza Brewing, winner of the coveted Henderson Cup, will be presenting how to brew sake. Homebrewing will be the focus of the presentation. Learn basic sake brewing rules that can be applied to homebrewing. You will have the chance to try some undiluted sake as well as a Doppelbock-sake experiment.

EKG Hop Split

The 2018 EKG has arrived! Thanks for your patience as we worked with HopsConnect to get this into our hands.

Spring Showdown 2019 Awards Ceremony

Judging for the 2019 edition of our Spring Showdown seasonal homebrew competition was completed back in May. We will announce results and awards prizes to the winners.
