Is anyone aware of any? And, how many of you out there are in the Philly area, out of curiosity.

I'm from York. There is a brew club here. I am sure there is a club in Philly.

Yep, I've heard of plenty in the area, and I think South Jersey also has a few. HOPS is the one my closest LHBS is involved with. Sounds pretty cool, they meet at byos in the area. Their web site also suggest a few other clubs.

I'm from Pennsauken NJ, right over the Betsy Ross Br.

Don't know of any clubs, but I've got a few friends who brew (and this website) and that's good enough for me.

I grew up in Swarthmore (parents still live there), but I didn't start brewing until I moved to Nashville, so unfortunately I am currently unaware of the local homebrew clubs. I suspect there have to be homebrew 'sleeper cells', if you will, being there is a decent population density in those parts. I know a few people who homebrew in and around Swarthmore, so I can ask around.

Broomall - not in any clubs and never tried to find one to join, but BYOB on Darby Road in Havertown has tastings every month. By coincidence, one is tonight at 7:00. Stop by.

Think global, drink local.
