The club will also have the club jockey boxes available for those that bring kegs, but you must arrange for your own CO2. 

There will be some incredible raffle prizes, as well as the announcement of the 2019 THC Homebrewer of the Year winner! It was a great event last year and should be another good one this year! The raffle prizes will be a surprise, but trust us when we say they are VERY COOL. Seriously, you don’t want to miss the raffle.

Involvement Opportunities

Competition Judging

We are always looking for more volunteers to judge at the club only competition. If you have any interest in becoming a BJCP certified judge or if you just want to learn more about the judging process, the club only competitions are a great setting to get some experience. Contact the officers for more information.

Education Topics

Is there a topic you’re passionate about or an experiment you’d like to perform? If so, we’d love for you to present it at a club meeting! The club is willing to reimburse individuals who present an approved education topic for ingredients, commercial examples of a certain style, or anything else needed for an experiment (up to a certain threshold). If you are interested in presenting, please email the officers or approach one of us at the meeting.

Facebook Members Only Group

If you didn’t know we had one, well we do! Check it out!

We will be clearing out the members of the Facebook page to remove anyone who is not up to date on their membership dues (for real this time!) after the March meeting. If you want to retain access to the Facebook group.

If you have any questions, comments, suggestions, please let us know at
