Default UGH! Where are all the homebrewers?!?

Anyways, I started a Facebook Home brewing group with the hopes of finding some of the brewers in or around Richfield Utah. So far it's been pretty lame. I know of a handful, and I know there are more out there.

Maybe there are some on the forum. I'd really like to find a group of individuals to start brewing with, and sharing brews, recipes, ideas, n other ****. So if you happen to be a brewer in and/or around Richfield Utah, or not, add http://www.facebook.com/pages/Richfi...284429?ref=sgm

They are probably hiding from the Morman Police.

Seriously with it being Utah, using Facebook to try to bring homebrewers together may not be the best idea. Don't forget Homebrewing was just legalized in your state last year. And even legalized you still have to deal with the fact the Utah is a pretty "straight laced" state. I'm sure there are a lot of homebrewers who have bosses who are Morman, or live in communities where it would be frowned upon so they're a little more circumspect in advertising the fact that they make and drink beer.

And since everyone and their mother is on facebook these days they may not be so quick to jump on your facebook bandwagon.

You're better off creating a subforum on HERE where there already are Utah brewers, and where this is a less public space.

In fact I looked and there's already an HBT Utah Club. Oh I just realized that you started the club on here. (I was going to point you out to that site but I see it is you.)

Do you have a nearby homebrew shop? Post something there. In 2 weeks it is "Learn To Homebrew Day" do you know if there's any events going on around you, like at a homebrew shop? If not I would start one, and simply post the time and place on your facebook page, but NOT make it so people have to rsvp, or like or anything public, just put it up and see who bites on the 6th.

You may find out you have a lot of lurkers on there who just don't feel comfortable signing on something so public like facebook. And may turn up on the 6th.

All that sounds like solid Advice Rev!! I'm glad I have a local HBS, and the North Florida Brewers League. Plenty of brewers in my area to hang out with, I cant wait till the next meeting

The LHBS here is in Salt Lake. Yeah, I've posted many events and such, asked around a lot. There are a few people that I know who already brew here, and a few more that are interested in starting. But, I'm interested in finding more so that the ones that I do know and the others can.... well, ya know.

Looking for the same in Salt Lake City. There is ZZHops, but they can be a bit crazy and don't really like amateurs from what I hear.
