The Chilliwack Homebrewer's Club was formed in 2012 by a small group of avid 'back yard beermakers' to share ideas, techniques, recipies, and of course, BEER! Over their first 6 months, the club grew to 40 members with varying levels of brewing experience and preferences but with one thing in common: The love of craft beer!The purpose of our club is to encourage the art of Home Brewing, and the appreciation of Craft Beer.Through regular meetings, informal and formal competitions, tastings , club brew sessions, extracurricular events and educational lectures our intent is to promote awareness and appreciation of the vast variety and high quality of home brewed beer and fermented beverages.By holding regular tasting sessions, homebrewers are able to sample both commercial and home brewed examples of many beer styles. Through evaluation and peer feedback, problem solving is facilitated and our collective brewing expertise is improved.Everyone is welcome!Our club is currently comprised of extract brewers, all-grain brewers, and kit brewers. We have several members that brew upwards of twice a week, some once or twice a month, while others only a few times a year. Some of us will only brew lagers, some only ales, and some never brew the same beer twice! Some have very specialized equipment while others have very modest setups. It is this vast diversity that lends the club a unique dynamic where the continual sharing of techniques and ideas, mentoring and instruction keep us in all in a constant state of learning and improvement. We were all new at this once, and we all learned from watching and listening to others. We welcome all new members no matter what level you think your brewing is at no matter what you're looking to get out of this club, if you love good beer, you will find friends, kindred spirits, and of course great tasting brews!
