So, just stumbling across this page for the first time?  New to homebrewing or been thinking about getting into it?  Well, you’ve come to the right place!

Welcome to the home of the Greenbelt Brewers Association!  We are a homebrew club that focuses on building our collective knowledge about the hobby of homebrewing, enticing newbies into the hobby, and, well, we all seem not to mind tasting each other’s brews either!

If you haven’t been to one of our meetings before, please make sure that you come out and join us for our regular July meeting on Tuesday, July 19th, 2011.  We meet at the UC Davis Brewing classroom at Sudwerks Brewery, up above the Dock Store.  Our meeting starts at 7pm sharp, but we highly recommend that you get there between 6 and 6:30 to have a pint down at the Sudwerks Dock Store: help support the company that supports us (and really, do you need a reason to buy a beer?!)

What will this meeting be like, you ask?  This will be a very special meeting since we’ll be doing a Single Hop celebration!  14 members of the club all brewed the same recipe beer (grain bill, ibu’s, hop additions, etc), but each with a single different hop.  The entire meeting will be focused on tasting these hops and seeing the different aromas, flavors, and to some extent, bitterness characteristics as well.  What we feel will be an excellent addition to every level of homebrewer’s knowledge base!

We also highly encourage our members (and visitors…or as we like to say, future members) to bring out a bottle or two of their latest batch for evaluation and sharing as well.

And if we entice you enough that you’ll want to associate yourself with our mootly crew in the future, lucky for you that new members only have to pay a prorated membership fee of $10 for the rest of the year! (Good till Dec. 31; standard membership dues are $20 a year…..which is still a really good price when you think about it!)

Hope to see all you there!!  Questions can be emailed to the board at greenbeltboard@googlegroups.com

Cheers!
