Hey all! I have been contemplating joining a homebrew club for a while now, but I have decided to see if there is enough interest out there to start one up. I live in Roselle, which is a Northwest suburb of Chicago. I am throwing this out there as a feeler to see if enough people are interested to make this worthwhile.
My idea is to meet once a month to swap brews, recipes, tips and critiques. After meeting a few times we can decide what other directions we want to take the club.
If anybody is interested in this, please respond to this message or email me at [email protected]

Ok, the first meeting will take place at Bigby's Pour House in Addison next Tuesday April 10th at 7:00pm. Anybody is welcome to come by and check it out. I would imagine that it will be pretty informal since it will be the first meeting and all. If you have bottles of homebrew that you would like to share please bring them. I don't we will be able to try them at the meeting but you can exchange them with other members. If you have any questions reply to this message or email me at [email protected]
