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.
