Default Considering a homebrew club..

Wanting to try and get out and meet some new people in the community but also want to gain some additional knowledge so I figured it might be time to check out some homebrew clubs. Are there any out there in the Aurora area?

Check in withthe brewhut, they have postings and info about the local brew clubs there. They also have meetups where you bring 2-4 beers and share them with other Homebrewers get feedback and stuff like that. The last one they had was last Thurs. I was planning on going but other things came up in the family life.

Somehow I keep missing the gatherings at brew hut, and i always keep meaning to do them. Kinda wished they were more often.

I'll have to check their board next time I'm in there.

Next homebrew night at the brew hut is Sept 19th. They only do it every couple months, late in the month, on thursdays. I, too, would like to meet up with other homebrewers, maybe something more informal. I only started in June.

It's easier if you signup for their mailing list. They don't send a lot of crap like other places do and you'll also get updated on the events.

This is how I feel. Probably for different reasons then you. I have been brewing for a year now but I have been a bit too self-concious to actually go to a brew club.

I'll have to put Sept. 19th on the calendar, although I think that's when my backpacking trip is scheduled.

Haha, not even sure my own reasons. I have been brewing for about 2 months. Kit, to extract, to partial/steep, now all grain. But I do not have the time, energy, interest, nor funds to start messing with water chemistry.

All my friends are either BMC drinkers or don't drink beer at all, so cannot really trust their opinions on my beer.

This is why I don't want to commit to a club yet

I have a hard time trusting friends or families' opinion as I always feel they are just being "nice'. I do think my beer (well most of it) is drinkable and pretty damn good but I am always my worst critic. Also with being new, I don't think I have the experience to know when off flavors are present in beers, maybe I would if I tasted them???

Well if any of you want to get together, informally sometime, I am sure we can work out something. I only have a Pale Ale that I am really not sure about but will be happy to share it and would love feedback. My dubbel won't be ready till around Christmas. And I need to get something else going but not sure what yet.

On the Christmas note, we are doing the 12 beers of Christmas but locally, if you have any interest let me know. There are only 4 of us so currently the four beers of Christmas but we would love to get a few more peeps involved.

I don't mean to horn in, but I wouldn't mind getting in on some of this action if we could avoid the postage. Just swap locally? And if only five or six do it you could up it to a six pack each. Just thinking.
