Your hosts for the Open House will be:

James Lewis

Open House activities happening throughout the day:


Tour the Brew House:  Feel free to take a self guided tour of the Brew House - at any time.  However, If you would like a guided tour and additional details about how the club/brew house works a tour will begin at 3pm, hosted by David Williams.


Learn to Brew:  Hosted by James Lewis, 9am.  James will walk through the all-grain brewing process, highlighting on procedure and techniques to make great home brewed beer.  James will also be covering the finer points of water modifications.

Open House Grilling: We will also be firing up the grill.  We will have some hot dogs supplied, but feel free to bring something for the grill if you'd like something a little different.

Share Homebrew:   We will have a couple members homebrew on hand.  But as always feel free to bring some of your own homebrew as well.  This is a great opportunity to share your brew with friends and get a critique (if you so desire).

Watch members making homebrew:  We can support up to 5 brew sessions during the Open House, using staggered brew sessions. 3 spots will be open in the morning; 2 in the evening.  If you are a member and would like to sign up to brew during the open house, please let us know.  Members doing a brew on Saturday are listed below:
