This is a shout out for the Gillette Homebrew Club. We run monthly meetings (rotate between member locations and other venues), group competitions, submit as a group to brew competitions, group test brews (March has a SMaSH brew going on where all members brewed up the same recipe and doing a test run), and group brew days.

The best venue to see what's up is hitting up the facebook page and checking out the events: https://www.facebook.com/groups/gillettebrewersguild/

Cheers to NE Wyoming brewers or any other homebrewer in the area.

You're missed here as well. We lost a few other regulars over the last year too due to people moving around. Then Pour Brothers moved in to another shop and they don't hold the events (that we could piggy back on to) like they used to as they're focused on the brewery. So we're down a few members.

We're doing a big drive and kicking out events this year to get some of that passion and membership back up. The beer today, compared to years ago, is awesome. It's rare a bad beer sneaks into a group meeting now that everyone has really started honing in their mistakes. Quantity is down, but quality is way up.

We really are getting this club rolling this year. Logo upcoming, member gear, guest brews, brewpub events, throw in another group brew day or two ... It's going to be a great year for beer out here.

I know if I left the area, I wouldn't be able to replace this group.

Cheers!

Ah, I remember the good ol' days of happily bringing in something that was passable for beer, but only just. I still do it occasionally, but now I do it with a warning of what not to do...
Now we just need to work on getting the word out and bringing more people in on the fun!
