Are there any smaller brew clubs in the Portland area, or Beaverton, that are pretty active at the moment? I've seen a couple online that charge yearly memberships but that seems a bit serious for me. Anything less formal?

Disappointing. I figured there would be a bigger group scene here in Portland where I thought there were a ton of homebrewers. Maybe everyone does their own thing? I used to be in a nice little group that had small competitions, monthly group brews, group grain and hop buys, and did joint recipe tests. I hope over time to get some views here and maybe start a new club. For now, I have a couple posts up http://pdxbrewersclub.wordpress.com/ If there are views and interest, things can progress from there I guess.

My brew club is very active. We gather in SW Portland every Sunday and brew between 5-36 gallons. It's a small club. On average 4-6 people show up. The max I've seen is 10. Our club is called BoarFish. I would say on average we teach between 4-6 people a year how to brew. I'm the newest member and I've been there a little over a year. The core group of guys have been brewing together for 10+ years.

We have the typical 5 gallon set up that we use the majority of the time. The club also has a 1 bbl system that we use when we can all agree on a recipe that everyone wants to buy in on.

I am right across the river in Vancouver and would live to buy in on a big brew day as well as hang out on a Sunday.

I just moved from Sw PDX to SE/clackamas area. I'm looking for some critique as I've hit a wall w my brewing and not getting the results I want and it is getting frustrating.
