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!

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.
