A Bit About Us

We are a Newcastle based club of beer enthusiasts. Our club seeks to encourage the enjoyment, creation and appreciation of good beer.

Club meetings are held every 3rd Friday of each month at the Hamilton North Bowling Club on Boreas Rd from 6:00pm (meetings usually start at 6:30pm). You can also find the exact dates in the events section.  We meet to discuss the brewing and tasting of good beer, share stories, try new beers, swap brewing tips and make new friends.  If you want to learn more about our monthly meetings, check out our New / Prospective Members blog post.

Apart from regular club meetings, the club organises various events for its members including case swaps, BBQs, tastings and brew days.


We also hold a brewing competition every year and even have a stand at the Bitter and Twisted Boutique Beer Festival.


So if you are interested in beer and want to get in contact with us, just shoot us an email or come along to one of our friendly monthly club meetings. We would love to see you there.
