Hey guys... not trying to push the club at all but I've been recently elected Pres of South Shore Brew Club.
We've been around since 1992 and we cover most of RI with guys regulary making the trip up to our meetings from Jamestown and Portsmith. Our meetings are almost always around Mansfield MA (not too far from anywhere in RI) and we draw members from as far north as Boston and as far west as Framingham.
We have about 40 members and our meetings average about 20 people. We do a huge group brew every year brewing a 50 gallon oak-barrel batch. Two years ago it was a braggot, last year we did a barleywine and this year I think we're going with a quad. We also do a lot of "buddy brews" where we have one-off brew days for smaller amounts with members.
We also run one of the largest competitions in the state of Mass every year.
Monthly meetings are the second Tuesday of every month. Last Tuesday was "Belgian Night". We had a Belgian importer come in and do a tasting of 9 different Belgians and talk about the brewing techniques, the history of the breweries, etc. It's one of the few times we did a commercial session and it was worth it.
We do four in-club competitions per year and do homebrew topic presentations at every meeting.
Check it out... (altough I need to harrass our secretary to update the newsletter and calendar)
