about us

 

Brewtherville Labs founders, Stewie and Michael met when preparing for a friendly homebrew competition at Shep and Donna’s annual 4th of July party (which was held in June 2012 because of their kids’ summer schedules). Introductions were made and soon thereafter their interactions were focused upon cooperation, rather than competition. The party was a success and two and a half kegs of homebrewed goodness were consumed by the party guests.

Subsequently, while brewing a double batch of marzen together, Stewie explained that he previously was in a small club that was focused more on drinking good beer than brewing it, and he proposed starting a club centered primarily upon brewing. The Club started in September 2012 and the first “unofficial” meeting was held at Grand Cru on October 18, 2012. The first “official” meeting (i.e., we collected dues from members, held elections, etc) was on January 15, 2013 at Mt Washington Tavern. We currently convene at Kent House Pub on the first Tuesday of each month at 8:00pm.

COMMUNITY

Brewtherville Labs is a community of homebrewers and craft brew lovers dedicated to learning and expanding the art and science of homebrewing and the appreciation of great beer. Lab members include craft beer lovers, homebrewing novices and experienced all-grain master brewers.


RESOURCES

Whether your a first-time brewer or a seasoned veteran we're here to help. From improvising a grain hopper to installing your first pump system we have the experience to help take your brewing game to the next level. We have hundreds of years of brewing experience between us and we're all for sharing

BENEFITS

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.
