Welcome to the Heights, I've been in Houston three years and in the Heights for the last two. I'm a member of a couple of the groups just because I keep meeting people from the different groups and getting invited to their meetings/brewdays.
The Foam Rangers
- Meet at Defalcos Homebrew Shop, which is on the south west corner of 610, once a month. They host a big homebrew competition call the Dixie Cup in October every year. Younger club, rowdy meetings.
- In the Clearlake/NASA area. Meet once a month on Tuesdays. Took my BJCP class with them this year and it was fantastic, tons of very smart people in their organization. The meetings are focused on learning a certain topic then sharing homebrew with everyone else.
- Is the group in North Houston/Spring. Meet once a month and the location changes, the meetings at Southern Star Brewery are great. More country boys in this club if that is your scene.
Beer bars close by - Petrol Station, Flying Saucer, Liberty Station. Onion/Cedar creek are great if it is nice out.
