What we're about

We are the North County Homebrewers Association of San Diego County and we are an official homebrew club registered with the American Homebrewers Association. This group is for brewers or those seriously wanting to learn how to brew. We have an official homebrew event once a month which includes a formal club meeting, educational presentations, as well as the fun of sharing our homebrew. We also hold other related events in addition to the regular monthly meetings. As all other official homebrew clubs, we do charge an annual membership fee which helps to cover club expenses. Our $24 annual fee ($30 for couples) helps in procuring materials necessary to instruct and educate our members, pay for competitions, traveling events, promotional materials, and other related expenses.

Please read the About us page (or Learn More About this Meetup Group) for more important info.
We look forward to meeting you at an upcoming event.

Mike will not be coordinating the drop off of equipment this time so we will be bringing things over the morning of and can use some help hauling everything.


The ABC class to obtain your one-day LEAD pouring license will happen at 10am. This training is good for 2 years. I you attended last year's Viking fest or Novemberfest training you don't need to attend again for this event. We need to make sure enough folks make the class to staff the bar throughout the day. If you sign up to pour at our bar you need a valid training.
