Welcome

Middlesex Malters Homebrew Club

Join the 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.   Follow us on Facebook at "Middlesex Malters". The club meets (generally) on the 4th Friday of each month.

It is 2024, so get ready for some great brewing.  Each month we'll feature a category of beers instead of one style  This will give some flexibility to brew things toward what you like best while experimenting with new styles. It will also allow us to get to know families of beers and appreciate their differences and similarities.  We also plan a quarterly experiment.  In the past this has been a lot of fun and helped those who participate learn some new things.  

In a  typical meeting, we will begin the with home brewed versions of the style family of the month, and some commercial versions.  Then open to all other styles for sharing and tasting.  

As always, all are welcome, longtime brewers, beginners and those looking to get started.  Feel free to bring a friend.  Cheers!

The schedule below is a work in progress, so things can change, but this is the current plan.  To get a monthly invitation to the meeting, along with specific location, fill out the form above and visit the Club Facebook page.

Meetings will include homebrew sharing, a mystery style test, various topic discussion and quarterly experiments
