Brew Club Monthly friendly competition
• What we'll do 12 styles of beer to brew each year, brew ahead to not be late for the monthly competition. Each brewer will bring 3 bottles of the monthly style. The styles have to follow the BJCP guide line. It's a learning experience that helps understand how to brew styles for bigger competitions. Learn how to judge and improve your palate and nose as well as discovering new styles of beer. It's really fun and rewarding. If you don't brew, you still might have a chance to join us by finding a commercial example of the style, you 1st submit your beer brand to the club, if approved you buy 3 bottles and your seat is reserved for you on that month. Maximum 3 non-brewers can join with commercial examples. Styles for each month: January Dark Mild 13A DONE February American Brown Ale 19C DONE March Black IPA 21B DONE April American Pale Ale 18B DONE May Berliner Weiss 23A UPCOMMING June Vienna Lager 7A July Cream Ale 1C August Saison 25 B September Weissbier 10A October Festbier 4B November Old ale 17B December Imperial Stout 20C Contact me for full details and join our wechat group to make sure you know everything that is going on. Monthly meetups dates are subject to change. • What to bring 3 bottles of your own brew, or a commercial example of the style that was previously approved by the club members if you are a non-brewer or didn't have a chance to brew the style required. • Important to know No need for being good at brewing, what matters is the will to learn and curiosity or be passionate of craft beer.

What we're about

Welcome to the Beijing Homebrewing Society, the home for homebrewers in Beijing! Our organization is dedicated to spreading the knowledge, culture, and appreciation of real beer in China. Our membership is open to all experience levels and walks of life, ranging from professional brewers to beginners looking to brew their first batch. Brewing beer is both an art and science, and nothing compares to the personal experience of making beer at home. Our organization gathers once a month, and typical meetings feature a presentation on a brewing topic, a tasting of the “style-of-the-month”, and a good atmosphere to network and share their experiences with fellow homebrewers. We now rotate our meetings locations at different venues in Beijing. All are welcome to our monthly gatherings, and you need not be a member to attend. When you do attend, bring your brew! We encouraged everyone to bring their tasty creations to share at our gatherings, but please remember support our hosts and buy a beer. Brewing beer at home in China faces additional challenges like sourcing safe and reliable brewing equipment and quality raw ingredients. As a community, we aspire to make these difficult tasks easier. So, if you wish to expand your beer knowledge and appreciation of China, I encourage you to come join us!
