I noticed on another thread that there are a handful of us around this neck of the woods. Do we ever organize Homebrewtalk regional gettogethers or events?

Check out the clubs section. I know there is a club near you somewhere. I live up near Gainesville so I go there. The club apparently is not very active, but that could be changed with some new blood and interest. Hope this Inspires you to join, or maybe even form a club of your own. Then Bulk buys and wholesale stuff would be easilly obtainable. I just started learning in December and I am having a blast so far. I am already building the needed equipment to assemble a three tier sculpture for all gran. So the addiction can get ya quick!!! Have fun and let us other Fla guys and gals know how you come out.

I hit BXbeerdepot now and then. It's out on Congress and 2nd (just north of Lake Worth Rd.) and behind what I think was a Miami Subs at one time.

There is FLAB in ft lauderdale....they meet in davie on I think the second Wednesday of every month. I joined their site around last September and missed every meeting so far:-) I either forget or something comes up. I'm trying to make it my mission to make it there in March.

Not sure where you are located but there is also MASH in Miami and the palm beach draughtsmen up north.

It would be great to try and organize a kind of mass meeting of all we south FL beer geeks for a big brew and to share some Homebrew.....just a thought but if anyone is interested I would certainly donate some time and beer

Cheers!

browsing and i saw this thread. I too live very close to BX.

If you have any ideas for events, it might be a good idea to post a flyer or something at BX. I may be interested in doing some stuff or getting a group started in the WPB/Lake worth area; especially if we can get some group buys going, discounts, some brew rig building maybe if there's some tradesmen or competent welders in the group, etc...

Maybe even have them at Bx. They just had a homebrew competition that was a blast. I think another one is coming up in June.
