Default Hello from Virginia!

Hello! My names Erik and I'm a home brewing newbie. I've got two extract brews under my belt and still have a lot to learn. Glad this forums here, the advice has been absolutely invaluable so far!

Cheers!

There's a lot to learn here with food & pairing, sausage & cheese making, beer, wine, etc. Enjoy!

Cheers and welcome, almost-neighbor. Lots of good folks in the NOVA area. A bunch of good clubs too, should you be interested.

Welcome!

I'm local to the area (DC), we've got a burgeoning brew scene and a number if local clubs that will introduce you other beer hobbiest and the beers they are brewing. I think NOVA has a number of clubs, and BURP (burp.org) is the oldest DMV area club.

You have found a great online repository here for beer knowledge.

As mentioned, BURP is the granddaddy club (the oldest in the area, and one of the oldest in the country if I recall correctly) that's kind of everywhere in the metro area at once. There's the Wort Hogs who I believe are currently meeting in Herndon. GRIST meetings in Arlington. DC Homebrewers meets at various places in DC, and on occasion in MD and VA. I know there's NOVA Homebrewers too. Not sure exactly where they're meeting, but I want to say it's Sterling.

Thanks for the suggestions. Definitely will have to check out Wort Hogs or NOVA Homebrewers at there in my neck of the woods. I have a toddler so it's hard to venture out too far right now...
