Brewtherville Labs founders, Michael and Stewie, met when preparing for a friendly head-to-head homebrew competition at a common friend's party in June 2012 . Stewie had previously started up a small club that was focused more on drinking good beer than brewing it, and he proposed starting a club centered primarily upon brewing.
Check out our interview with the Baltimore Sun.
Brewtherville Labs started in September 2012 and the first “unofficial” meeting was held at Grand Cru on October 18, 2012. The first “official” meeting (i.e., members' dues were collected, elections were held, etc.) was on January 15, 2013 at Mt Washington Tavern. Several years later, we moved to Kent House Pub in Towson. When Rich, another Brewtherville Labs member, decided to build a brewery and taphouse, the club moved further north to Hunt Valley to our new home: BC Brewery, where we meet on the first Tuesday of each month at 8:00pm.

Recently our members had the privilege to attend the 38th annual National Homebrewers Conference, June 2016. As members of the American Homebrewers Association our members had the opportunity to attend and live out the experience of a lifetime, or perhaps the decade at least. NHC Baltimore 2016 was an experience not soon to be forgotten. Beer was had (many, many beers) and club night was amazing. Countless homebrew clubs together, the creativity and innovation topped, with personality to match. We can't wait until next year, wherever the NHC may find itself. We vote Baltimore in perpetuity, but we'll take what we can get.
Brewtherville Labs members are also proud members of the American Homebrewers Association.

Hop crowns or rhizomes? Hop rhizomes are small roots that are cut from the main root system of a mature female hop plant. While capable of developing into a fully grown plant, there is no guarantee that a rhizome will grow. Should it grow, it generally requires three years of development to yield quality produce. On the other hand, each hop crown is a field-ready plant: a plant that is a minimum of 1 growing season old with a well developed root system with multiple breaks taken from healthy vigorous stock. By comparison it's a grown plant, producing a quality ingredient significantly sooner than rhizomes.
