This February we are going back to our gracious host, Northern Maverick Brewing Co.. Thanks for hosting us! 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!

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!

New Structured Tasting Format

Recent feedback from several club members has indicated that our current Structured Tasting format (introduced in Sept 2018) has reduced the amount of social time in the meetings by too much. After some discussion among club officers we decided to tweak the format again.

We will maintain the element of veteran tasters sharing their perceptions, however we will move Structured Tasting off the microphone. Instead the session will be conducted over to one side of the room so that people can choose if they wish to listen along or not.

Membership & Guest Attendance

Due to AGCO requirements for serving home-brewed beer under SOP (Special Occasion Permit), club membership is required to attend monthly meetings. However, prospective members are invited to attend their first meeting as a guest to check us out before committing to membership.

Attend once and you'll want to keep coming back, we promise!
