Hey guys,

I have wanted to join a homebrew club for a while now, but unfortunately there aren't many in my area (I know there are some in Shrewsbury, Spencer, Brookfield, and Ludlow) but there isn't anything active in Sturbridge.

I was hoping to find 5 or so other local homebrewers living in the Sturbridge, MA area that would be interested in starting up a club and meeting once a month or so. It would be great to share some tips, do some brew experiments, and taste some other homebrews not made by me!

If you are a brewer in the area and would be interested, PM me and we can see if we can get something going.

Kaz

Would you be interested?

I think we could get some support from the local brewery in town (Pioneer Brewing) for meeting space and/or bulk grain pricing.

I was thinking one meeting a month, dedicated to a specific style of beer that all of us would brew, share, and critique. There would also be opportunity to do group scaled experiments (same beers/different yeast, SMaSH series, FWHing, etc) as well as share experience, knowledge, articles, etc. We could even do commercial tastings and stuff.

Anyway please let me know if you are interested. I would assume we need 5-10 people to get started and see how things shake out!

Not sure if anyone is keeping an eye on this thread still, but I recently moved to Sturbridge and was doing some research on clubs in the area. I've never posted here before, but have ~15 batches under my belt, and would definitely be interested in meeting and learning more. I could also likely get one other person involved.

Sturbridge would not be a stretch for us and would love to meet up with 'local' brewers...

Awesome!

I'd love to get a group together for a casual home-brew club if nothing more than just meeting some fellow home brewers and sharing knowledge/experiences. And trying home-brew of course!

So how many would we have interested?

I know it's been a while, but I've just started home brewing in January and I'm definitely interested in this action. What's going on here if anything?

Nothing yet to date. I was hoping for enough interest for fairly regular meetings. So far you are the only one who has expressed interest recently.

Wow. We can't really be the only semi sociable home brewers around...

I'm in Webster, which isn't too far out there. Closest I've found is a group out in West Boylston.
