Some of the employees at the Beer Nut told me the same thing a while back. I went to a meeting to check things out anyway. It was a really friendly and laid-back group and they were very welcoming to me as a beginner. I would suggest you at least give them a try.

I later saw that the Beer Nut folks were trying to start a different club and asked why...after digging a little, I learned the Beer Nut folks are sore about ZZHops organizing bulk hop & grain purchases from wholesalers, which they feel is undermining their business.

I have heard a few things about zzhops from others, but since I have never been to a meeting I have no opinion. What I can say is that it seems like it's a secret society or something.

No website, no facebook, at least not that I can find. I spoke with a member once, he took my info and said he would have the club pres contact me, but that never happened.

How can someone who is getting interested in homebrewing ever go if there is no info about joining, meeting times and places, etc ?

Oh well...

and for that to happen, finding a meeting center that allows alcohol around here is tough if its not a reciption hall or something. also would have dedicated member dues required for the rent wich has a security deposit also.. im happy to get invited to the mead makers even if they all dont talk the beer talk...

Sorry, not trying to stir the pot. I can see that as a legitimate concern, it's just I had no idea on the procedure or facilities.

Someone from the club forwarded me the details today. I can't make tonights meeting but I plan on attending one soon. More than happy to host one of these upcoming meetings as well.

Cheers!
