Middlesex Malters Homebrew Club

We are a homebrew club that supports homebrewers throughout central Connecticut. All who are interested (and 21 or older), whether you have no brewing experience at all and want to learn or are a seasoned homebrewer, are welcome to join. No dues are charged for membership and joining is as simple as clicking here and completing the short survey.  Our plans for 2016 are being finalized now and include regular monthly meetings, club brew-days, brewery tours, experimental brews and more!  Please, give us any thoughts and ideas you have.  The club meets (generally) on the 4th Friday of each month.
