Default NE Arkansas Homebrewers

[Hoping I'm not yelling into a void...]

I moved to Jonesboro about a month ago and am on the hunt for some homebrew buddies. Craigshead being a dry county, I figure that I can't be the only one who's brewing to survive. Ideally, I'd like to get the homebrew scene really chugging around here, but until then just chatting about brewing will suit me nicely.

So the itty bitty homebrew shop here in Jonesboro is having a brewing class this Sunday, November 10. The info is on their Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/neabrew

I'm planning on stopping by to meet whoever shows up. I'm also bringing a sign up sheet for a new club I'd like to start, so if anyone is interested in getting together this is a good opportunity to meet. See you then!

The first meeting of the Jonesboro Area Brewers will be tomorrow at 6PM at NEA Brewers Supply! If you or anyone you know can make it, I hope to see you there!

I drive near Jonesboro each year when I come south. I've never seen any indication of beer or brewing in that area- but if I lived there I sure would have to brew! Good luck on your club.

A little far for me, but good luck and hope it turns into something great!

Thanks! I just moved here about 6 months ago and was pleased to see that a brewshop had recently opened. After talking to a few people, I realized that there is a smattering of brewers in the area, so I figured why not bring them all together.

After all, this is a dry county, and driving far to get your suds gets really, really annoying. I hope your next trip out this way finds Jonesboro a little less sleepy and a lot more brew-happy.

Thanks! If this thing picks up steam, hopefully we'll see you at an upcoming event or something!

It's tonight. I've heard murmurings of interest, so hopefully there'll be more people there than just me and the brew shop owner.

Though I didn't get to attend the first meet, I was happy to attend last night's second meeting that I deemed a great success!

Being a complete n00b to the brew scene, I sort of expected to feel out of place but was surprised at the very easy nature of the get together.

Thanks for the work you've done to get this thing started!


P.S. This is Josh, BTW.

P.P.S. Love the Chairhead Chippendale costume!
