home brewers guild meetings

On the third Tuesday of every month Burp Castle hosts the New City Home Brewer’s Guild Meeting. The meeting starts at roughly 7:30pm and ends roughly at 9:30. Burp Castle is open to the public during these meetings, and The Home Brewer’s Guild is a friendly bunch. You might just learn something about beer that you didn’t already know.

Who are the NYC Home Brewer’s Guild? Here is a little from their website:

The New York City Homebrewers Guild is the oldest homebrewing club in the New York City area. Founded in 1987, the guild’s main purpose was to give homebrewers a rest haven to talk and learn about the aspects of making high quality hand-crafted beers and wines. In the past 20-plus years, many guild members have moved on from homebrewing into commercial brewing at various brewpubs and breweries.

The NYCHG now meets monthly at Burp Castle. At the meetings, the members listen to guest speakers, taste hand-crafted beers not locally available, and of course, there’s always homebrew! Previous guest speakers include numerous commercial brewers, importers, distributors and authors.

Dedicated to the fine art of brewing quality beer, the Guild’s main focus is to educate its members and the public about the age-old craft of homebrewing. It also is dedicated to the success of microbrewers, bars, and retailers providing hand-crafted beers to the public.
