Team Brewing

What is this whole thing all about?

Many of you told us that you are not currently brewing because you don't have space or equipment, or don't have anyone to brew with, or still need to learn more about homebrewing. Together, we can solve this problem! The club is looking to help team up groups of 3 or 4 people who can brew together, and submit their beer for our new style focus/tasting meetings, building on the success of our California Common tasting a few months ago. 

There will be four of these meetings next year, beginning with Tropical Stout in February. We are hoping to get 4 or 5 small teams to submit beers and talk to the membership about their recipe, brewday and answer any questions during the tasting. The club will provide or reimburse part of the ingredients as long as a minimum of 2 gallons are brought to the meeting. Your team can share the rest, or submit to competition for more feedback! Individual brewers are still welcome to contribute entries for the tastings, but because of the importance of this program, team beers will get preferential treatment.
