The local club in your area is Levee Break Brew Club... We know a couple of them from various competitions and they make great beer. Their facebook site is below. https://www.facebook.com/Leveebreakbrewcrew
Thile and I are part the Homebrewer's Association of Middle Mississippi. We are a Jackson metro based homebrew club. Our site is hbamm.org and we try to keep the calendar updated for events:http://hbamm.org
HBAMM organized the Jacktoberfest competition and assisted with homebrew beer garden at the event. It was a lot of fun and worth the trip to Jackson to attend. http://www.jacktoberfest.com/
The past couple of years we have had a Homebrewer's Retreat just outside of Vicksburg. There people from Delta Brews (local Vicksburg club), HBAMM, and Levee Break there. I don't know if there will be one this year though. The organizer has moved to Ellisville.
