Default Looking for a brew club or group in MA

Hey guys,

I'm hoping to find a brew club or group of brewers in the Massachusetts area. I live about 30 minutes outside of Boston. I have been doing extra w/ partial and I have been working my way up to all grain as I build my equipment. I'd definitely be interested in some all-grain "mentoring", though mainly I'm just looking for a group/club.

Thanks!

Thanks for that list... I saw that on AHA...

I was hoping for some club members in my area to chime in...

If you don't mind a three-hour drive, there's a get-together in Southern VT (Bennington) in a couple weeks. There's a group of us (Yankee Ingenuity) that tends to get together every couple of months to brew and/or drink. I think there was some ******* about another Boston brew session at some point, I know Paulthenurse just hosted one that I unfortunately could not make.

Awesome list! I had no idea there was a brewclub 15 minutes from my house. Good stuff! When is the next Yankee Ingenuity session scheduled? If its not towards the end of the summer I'd love to attend since I might be less of a n00b by then

Hey, NoClue,

I'll be moving to Cape Cod this fall. Planning to get together with CCLAM if they'll have me. Hope to see you around...
