Default Calling Bergen County Home Brewers!

There seems to be a lot of difficulty finding active homebrew clubs in northern NJ, and we desperately need one. I've spoken to a few other Bergen county peeps and everyone has the same complaint--we're always pointed towards clubs that are too far away to make weekday meetings.

So what should we do about this? I'm thinking that we should just start a group centered around Paramus. Thoughts? Feelings? I know we don't have a LHBS close either, but we should be able to find a place that would let us meet up.

How's about an organizational meeting over pints at Andy's Corner? Who's in?

Id be interested in joining - we could also hold meetings at Mahwah Bar & Grill as well. Much smaller beer selection but good wings

Awesome! So that's three, and that makes a quorum. Anyone want to propose a date and time? I am full-up busy through next Wednesday, but other than that I am good. For location, the only hiccup I have is a city commute that can run late. Is there a location that is central to all of us? What about three wise monks?

Cheers!

Sounds like a good idea. I wouldn't mind meeting other brewers. Any plans been made?

I'd be in. Live in Westwood, so most anywhere in bergen county is good with me. Might be able to talk in another one or two guys i know.

Wow more people! This going to be fun. Nope, no definite plans have been made. I was kind of waiting a bit to see where everyone was so we could pick a convenient place. Looks like we have a geographic stretch from Ramsey to Hoboken. The only places I know of that are near the center of everyone so far are Three Wise Monks (Garfield) and the Twisted Elm (Elmwood Park).

I would vote that we kick this off easy with a trip to Andy's and order in some food or pick up locally. Once we get a group together, we can start working our way around to the rest of the pubs in the area. How's that sound? Anyone want to propose a date?

I'm free most evenings, but wake up early for work during the week, so i'd prefer a friday night or weekend day/night. If that's no good, i'm still gonna show up on a weekday, i'll just be tired at work the next day.

I am in as well. Live in Paramus and have been heading over to Cricket Hill Brewery in Freehold once in a awhile as they have a homebrew club that meets there. Happy to be somewhat closer to home.

I think you mean Fairfield, not freehold.
