Bexar Brewer here. The club is actually pretty active and we have quite a range of brewers. We held a AHA competition in April and had nearly 550 entries. We also assisted for the homebrew event last month during San Antonio Beer Week. Our meetings are the 3rd Friday of the month and is generally held at one of our members houses.

As far as I know there are three generally active clubs (although I assume there are a number of smaller groups that get together). My impression of the clubs are generalizations as there are all types of brewers in each club but here goes...

Bexar Brewers - the oldest and most active homebrew club. Most of the brewers have been brewing for a while and most are all-grain brewers. We don't update our website or Facebook very often so you really have to get on the email list.

Homebrew Party - started by Homebrew Party. They cater to new brewers and their monthly meetings (as I understand) include brewing an extract beer during the meeting at the store.

Cervaceros - Really a beer appreciate club that tries to convert people to appreciate beer and then hopefully assist them later in becoming brewers. They have a pretty active group that put on events pretty regularly.

...I decided not to give my impressions of each as everyone has different views and I like and dislike certain things about each club.

I hope this helps and if you decide to attend the Bexar Brewer's meeting on Friday June 15th I will see you there.

I am thinking about hosting a tasting pretty soon if anyone is interested in the SA area. I would like this to be some commercials that people have been holding on to and homebrew. I have some questions regarding home brew techniques and practices that I would like to ask over some beers. Any locals let me know.

I am one of the Homebrew Party peeps... For me, the Homebrew crew is perfect for my schedule and my pace, plus I live a few miles away. Their club meetings used to be my Friday night beer drinking fun and socializing, but most recently, I have been tapping into the minds of the brewers in the group. I have been trying different recipes and learning new types of things to make.

I also brew with some friends from work who really don't associate with any of the clubs, I guess... We brew all-grain recipes and I always maintain 3 kegs in my fridge. I also make wine, sake' and other things and occasionally open my cellar doors for all to come and taste.

Bottling some Jalapeno Saké this morning. Racked the other batch of Saké over to the secondary....planning to try a Citrus Infused Saké with that batch.
