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.
