Are you a home brewer that wants to meet other home brewers? Want to learn how to brew your own beer? This group's for you!

The San Francisco Homebrewers Guild was established to serve as an organizing force for the local homebrewer community. Our goal is to encourage the art and craft of homebrewing and to bring local brewers together. In 2012, we grew to about 80 dues-paying members, at the end of 2013 we had approximately 170 dues-paying members and a mailing list of over 700 local Bay Area beer geeks and homebrewers. We continue to grow! We must be doing something right, come see if you want to join up, too!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
