Canadian Clubs

Clubs are a great way to get together with other homebrewers in your area, and share your homebrew and maybe some tips. The more casual groups are usually a social meetup of sorts, and the more structured groups have educational seminars, homebrew competitions, ingredient bulk buys and more. Clubs are usually volunteer run and driven, so it’s what you put into it!

Canadian Homebrew Clubs

Here is a list of the active homebrew clubs available in Canada. Some of the clubs are online only, so please get in touch with the specific clubs for more information. If you don’t see your club here, or would like to update your club information, please get in contact with Kathy Yan Li.

If there isn’t one in your area, check out How to Start a Club to maybe getting one rolling!
