I'm from New Brunswick but not in the City, basically stuck in that no man's land where I'm about a mile or 2 from North Brunswick, East Brunswick and Edison.

Reading through the thread I find it enjoyable that people debate so heavily what's North, South, and Central Jersey. It's like being in a real discussion. I like to think of Central Jersey as Middlesex, Mercer, Monmouth, and Somerset, then parts of Ocean, Union, and Hunterdon. But then again I think of certain parts of Burlington as Central Jersey as well.

As far as clubs, I haven't joined any yet, I'm working as a homebrewer myself but also with my brother so I think we'll look at joining one together but I'm not sure. Depends on if we can get our schedules to mesh with a homebrew club's schedule

Checking in from Wall (Allenwood).....thought about joining a club. I also thought about joining njcrabz but I heard there gone now. Jill from BA said the guy who used to run it, got a job as a brewer at Carton.

Hey, I've been brewing since March, located in Bridgewater (obviously, based on my handle). Thinking about going to a WHALES meeting too. Also wanted to let the Central Jersey brewers know about a relatively new homebrew shop in New Brunswick. Good prices, nice guys, and they have samples on tap. And no, I don't work there.

That's technically North Brunswick but close enough.

Thanks for the correction Bobby M. I've also been looking for a local club and although Ferment the World website seems outdated, they are active on Facebook. http://www.facebook.com/home.php?ref...eworld?fref=ts
According to facebook page, their next meeting will be the January 7th at 7:30PM at Harvest Moon

I've met some guys at Ferment the World, they're cool people. The did a brewing thing at love2brew like a week after Sandy with some of the guys there and they're all really chill guys.

I know of few of the regulars at Ferment the World but just to clarify, they are more of a casual regular meet-up vs. a formal club. Everyone has their own preferences of course so that very well might be what you guys are looking for. The Whales collect dues, run regular projects, structured tasting exercises, competitions, own a 2BBL portable brew house, etc.

Thanks Hoppy. I'm going to get over to a meeting once I get another brew or two bottled.
Thanks for the info Bobby. Given my other committments and the fact that I'm still getting up to speed, a more casual group is probably better for me, for now. I definitely could see myself working up to the WHALES club though.

If you're in the Woodbridge area, the WHALES are a great club. I went to a meeting a few months ago and really like what they're doing up there. Unfortunately, I'm in Toms River and I'm not sure I can commit to getting up to Woodbridge even once a month.

Anyone know of any good clubs in the Toms River/Ocean/Monmouth area?
