The Edmonton Homebrewers Guild

The Edmonton Homebrewers Guild is the oldest home brewing club in Canada. We meet at Alley Kat Brewery on the first non-holiday Monday of every month from September until May. We offer education sessions and resources to help you become a better brewer. Members enjoy discounts at local and national supply shops. Plus we're all nice people and we do fun stuff.

Members range from pro brewers to beginners. No matter your budget or experience level, if you're interested in making beer, the Edmonton Homebrewers Guild is the place for you.
