The St. Louis Brews is a club dedicated to the brewing, evaluation, and responsible consumption of homebrewed beers. At last count we had precisely 145 members or so.
What we do
We focus on a particular style, or styles for a given meeting. Please see the monthly meeting schedule on the home page. Our members bring beers of that style, and we evaluate and compare against commercial examples. In most cases our members' homebrewed beers are better than the commercial examples! If you would like to bring a beer for evaluation at a meeting, please bring at least (12) 12oz. bottles or an equivalent amount of draft beer from a keg. Our expert Brewmeister and his staff will only pour as much of your beer as is needed, so if you bring too much...you will go home with the remainder.
Is there a cost?
Membership is currently $35.00 per calendar year, and a $5.00 per meeting fee if you don't bring beer. The meeting fee covers food for the night, and possibly some commercial beers if needed. When you become a member you receive a monthly newsletter, invitations to our two picnics, our National Homebrew Day celebration, and our end of year banquet, not to mention special events that come along such as brewery tours, meet & greets with brewing illuminati, beer tastings, etc. You also get a membership card that entitles you to special benefits around town, listed on our Friends of the Brews page. Want to give us a test drive before joining? Come as a guest a few times. Just pay a $5.00 meeting fee and sit in on a meeting. Membership in the St. Louis Brews and attendance at our meetings is restricted to those 21 years of age and older.
We have set up a PayPal account to allow new and existing members to pay their membership dues. Additionally, you can pre-pay your $5.00 meeting fee. You will be automatically entered twice into the drawing, and can save the time in not needing to check in at the meeting!
We all have a great time. Hope to see you there!
