Here at Golden Road, we love the many facets of our growing craft beer community. Whether it’s a cool craft beer bar, a specialty bottle shop, or neighboring local breweries -- all of these elements make up the patchwork that is our beer landscape. Another important part of this community are homebrewers. But how does one meet and network with like-minded individuals? Join a homebrew club!
In our quest to learn more about everything under the brewing sun, we’ve discovered that a great way to get hands-on experience in a group setting is to join a club. There are quite a few active organizations in the Greater Los Angeles/ Southern California area including The Maltose Falcons -- America’s Oldest Homebrewing Club. We’ve compiled a list of some clubs for you to explore. Many of these organizations offer crash courses and group brew days, monthly meetings, and even host annual events. If you’re lost or need support of other homebrewers, a club is a great way to meet new people and discover which methods work best for you.
