The Hogtown Brewers, established in 1985, is an American Homebrew Association sanctioned homebrew club. We are dedicated to promoting a better understanding of the art of brewing and also to the appreciation of the many and varied styles of beer from around the world. A secondary purpose (but one near and dear to our hearts) is to stimulate the economy by providing a healthy and growing market for the US hops crop (all right, we do our bit for the economy of Europe as well). Perhaps you got a clue about this sentiment, if you noticed the statement at the top of our home page - "Since 1985, more hops than our lawyers advise." You didn't think that was chosen at random did you?

We meet the second weekend of each month. Like most homebrewers, we're a fairly sociable group of folks. If you are a homebrewer (or think you'd like to be) we'd like to invite you to come to one of our meetings and see what we're all about. At a typical meeting we try to blow through the business section as quickly as possible, so we can get to the fun stuff, the crux of the matter, the purpose of the whole deal...BEER.

We hope we're not giving you the impression that we live for beer alone (although that might be true). We do try to promote responsible drinking habits. We are not Coneheads. Our purpose is not to consume mass quantities, but rather to learn as much as we can about this wonderful beverage. After all, as they say, "Beer is living proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy."
