I believe Ed from Brew It Yourself is in that group. In an emergency supply run, I had to go to the Oak Spring shop in the mall, when the lady there told me that the guy from OSW was trying to get a group/club together. I haven't heard anything recently but if I do, I'll post the info here.

I went to a brew club at the railroaders museum in altoona once about a year ago. They meet once a month but can't remember what day.

If you could remember anything about them, like club name or contact person, let us know. I'm particularly interested.

Yeah he has pretty much anything you need. But you could always call ahead and check with him and he can get stuff in like other yeasts you'd want.

I think as far as yeast goes he only carries the basic dry stuff like us05.

I haven't been over to see Troy at Bootleggers in a while. I should stop in. His hours suck for me so I can't usually get there during his hours.(I believe somebody said earlier his Sat hrs were 12-5, sorry, they're 8-12.) But he's knowledgeable and can point you in the right direction if he can't get something.
I've gone up to Brew-It-Yourself a couple of times. You can lose a lot of time there if you're not careful. Ed will let you sample stuff sometimes and his shop is a little bigger to wander around.
I was just up in NH last week and stopped by Jasper's Homebrew(sometimes known as Boomchugalug on Amazon), and Jeff is a great guy. If I'm ordering anything online, that's where I'm going from now on. His kits are fresh and he offers extract and all-grain versions of them.

I did find reference to a club in the Altoona area: Altoona Cap N' Cork Club. Anybody know anything about them?

I found an email for the cap and cork club and tried to contact them. However, I received a message that said it was a failed delivery. I double checked and had the correct email address.
