The Club

The LAGERS Homebrew club has been brewing beer and learning from each other since 1989! We meet on the 3rd Monday each month at Akasha brewing’s tap room on Main Street to talk about our latest brews, recipes, and best practices for brewing great beer. You don’t need to be a member to come to the meeting, and you’re welcome to bring your homebrew!

The club hosts a variety of events throughout the year, such as our annual June and September picnics / campouts and a banquet in January. Our members are able to participate in bulk grain buys and other benefits. You can find all our updates on this site or on our facebook page, and members and non-members love to talk about all kinds of brewing-related things on our facebook group. We hope to see you at the next meeting!
