What: The San Francisco Homebrewers Guild was established in 2012 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. Join us for monthly events including homebrew shares, brew days, commercial and home brewery tours, meet-the-brewer parties, style classes by pro brewers, and so on.
Who: You! Whether you have been brewing for many years or have barely unpacked your starter kit, the SFHG welcomes homebrewers of all levels to our events. Even the most experienced homebrewers can benefit from feedback about their creations!
BYOH: Bring your own homebrew! We strongly encourage homebrewers to bring a few bottles of their brew to meetings to share with fellow homebrewers for fun and valuable feedback. Bring your best stuff to brag on and your not-so-good stuff for advice. Have you brewed up something with some serious off-flavors? Don’t be embarrassed about it, we’ve all done it! Homebrewers love to try weird brews to try to figure out what went right or wrong, so please bring it all. Also, it’s OK to bring the occasional pro brew in order to demonstrate a particular style or if you were trying to clone it, but generally we do stick with sharing homebrew at our meetings.
Help Out: The SFHG Founder and 2012-2014 President is Chris Cohen. As we get off the ground, we’re looking for dedicated homebrewers to serve the guild as VP, Treasurer, and Secretary. We’d love to have some help with the blogging, tweeting, and Facebook duties, and we’d be especially appreciative of help with future events. If you would like to own an event or monthly meeting, know a good location for an SFHG meeting, have an idea for a cool and/or educational event, or know someone in the homebrewing or commercial brewing world who may be interested in doing an event with SFHG, please let us know!
