Victoria BC Hombrew group
Are there any other folks from Victoria who are interested in meeting regularly? I know Vancouver has a group, but I havent seen one on the Island. I think it might help foster the development of the homebrew community here.

I'd be down!

(I'm usually in Victoria)

Cool, well that's one! There must be more a community over here somewhere!?

I know that there are some homebrewers in that area... Fat Cat earned a fair bit of their revenue by selling wort to homebrewers when I was last there (a few years back).

P.S. Fat Cat was a cool place - how are they doing beer-wise now-a-days?

Funny you should ask, I noticed that it was up for sale recently (for a fairly small sum). I assume they were not doign well financially, or the margins were very thin or something like that. Beer wise they are OK, though I think they have a lot of competition from groups like Phillips and Driftwood, who are making excellent beers.

I am currently looking for a group in the area and would be interested in meeting.

Ok, Hoser and Hoppin, It looks like it is just the three of us on the island. I havent been able to find any homebrew clubs over here (other than CAMRA, and I dont know if that is really their focus). I’m not sure if there is a club or group over here. We may have to form our own. I’m going to Phoenix (got to get warm man) for a week, but I’ll be back the week of March 21. If you guys are interested in meeting at a pub after that (maybe Friday the 25th), I’m in.

My background in brewing is still somewhat limited (hence wanting to join a group). I have done all grain BOP, but that’s it so far. I have started to buy all the parts and fittings I need to start doing AG at home.

Sounds good to me 25th it is. Seems I am at about the same level, just trying to get everything together for AG brews, just fermenting the boxes right now. I was doing brews at Brew works, but the quantity was too much for experimentation.

Hey, Westcoast, good meetin' ya the other night lets see if we can't get a few more locals in our "CLUB"...lol
