I am looking to see if there are any folks in the Elgin area that might be interested in starting a Homebrew Club. I'd love to coordinate a few brewing sessions and swap a few brews and recipes with peepz in the area.

I am fairly skilled at technical projects and would love to help my brothern with their keezer conversion or whatever the project may be.

If we get to the right size we can find a local spot such as the Elgin Riverside Club or Elgin Public house for our meetings.

Thoughts? My buddy and I are here on the Northeast side if anyone wants to join us for a brew session some time! We have a "young guy" palette so we tend to brew many IPA, APA, and English-style ales. Though I have much to learn in ways of lagering, etc

Kory

I live in Algonquin and work in Elgin right by 31 and 90. I'll follow this thread.

Midnight carboys meet at Dukes in Crystal Lake and Club Wort meets at Durty Nellies in Palatine. Club Wort is a good time. Plenty of members so there is always plenty of brew.

Yea, there are clubs in St. Charles as well, but nothing seems to be right in Elgin. We'll I will keep this thread open and maybe down the line if someone is interested they can give a shout out.
