Who are the Mad Zymurgists?
The Mad Zymurgists is a homebrew club founded in April of 2007, and holds monthly meetings in the Tri-Valley (outer East Bay) area of California. This club is intended for the advancement of homebrewed beers, ciders, and meads. We encourage the study and appreciation of fermentation science (Zymurgy).
But most of all we are a club of like-minded women and men passionate and excited about homebrewing. Our greatest joy is celebrating our wonderful hobby together as a club.
Our members are a mix of beginner, intermediate to advanced home brewers and professional brewers, and we welcome brewers of all levels of experience. Club members are typically quite generous in sharing their knowledge of various brewing techniques and their enthusiasm for the craft. A typical meeting consists of a social hour, club business and announcements, and often discussion of specific brewing techniques. Guests are always welcome and we encourage potential new members to get on our email list and Yahoo Group. Some meetings feature a guest speakers, and/or a club member presenting on a topic of interest. We also discuss and assist members on evaluating beers for entry into the many area homebrew competitions and events, and encourage participation in the great homebrew related events around our area, and around the country.
