About Mad ZymurgistsThe 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).
Our members are primarily intermediate to advanced home brewers, but 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 speaker, and / or a club member presenting on a topic of interest. Also, in months where an AHA club-only competition is coming up, we perform internal judging to select our club's entry. We often discuss area homebrew competitions and events, and encourage participation in many of the great homebrew related events around our area, and around the country.
