Default 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 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.

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.
