Joining the Club
How, why, and what it costs

About the
Hogtown Brewers

"Do not cease to drink beer, to eat,
to intoxicate thyself,
to make love, and celebrate the good days."

Ancient Egyptian proverb


Despite the fact that you probably wouldn't want to belong to any club that would have you for a member, we'd love to have you join us, really. We typically meet the second Saturday of each month and would certainly like to invite you to the next meeting. Dues are $20 per year for an individual brewer, and $30 for family membership.
