I am not sure on how to get a homebrew club started but im sure its not that hard. I think the first thing we need to do is grab some members and set a date for the first meeting. So if you would like to join a homebrew club in Annapolis simply reply with "I love beer".
I love beer
I have a buddy that would be interested as well so that makes 2!
Second we need to find is a meeting place. I used to work at a couple of bars in Annapolis, so i could ask around and see if it was ok for us to bring in some homebrew for meetings to taste. Or we could try to hold it at someones house. Unfortunately, I am renting and my apartment so i would not be able to accommodate anyone. Examples: Fado Irish Pub, Slyfox Pub, Galway Bay or theres this place called Lures in crownsville(i did not work here) but it has really good beers on draft. Then of course theres always ramshead (they have a ton of craft beers on draft)
Third, we need to make an agenda. What will the first meeting be about? I guessing probably just a meet and greet. Maybe trade some beers. Talk about our brewing set ups. Maybe even set up a group brewing day. Also we could talk about some mistakes we have made to prevent others from doing the same. We could also talk about group buys on ingredients to save all of us a lot of money. Maybe set some meetings up for a DIY kinda thing.(mash tuns, stir plates, yeast starters)AND LAST WE NEED TO ACTUALLY NAME OUR CLUB!
Then we could register the club in the AHA for free.
Let me know if your in or have any ideas on what to do to get this started. LETS SET A DATE!
