Over 1.2 million people brew their own beer at home in the United States. The American Homebrewers Association® (AHA) is a not-for-profit organization based in Boulder, Colo., dedicated to promoting the community of homebrewers and empowering homebrewers to make the best beer in the world. Since 1978, the AHA has worked to educate people worldwide about the coolest hobby there is—homebrewing.

Since 1969, GRODAN has been the world-wide leader in helping commercial soil-less growers of fruit, flowers and vegetables. The GRODAN company is a part of the  ROCKWOOL Group which employs more than 11,000 people in more than 35 countries.

GRODAN’s success comes not only from quality products, but also from our dedication to our customers. The GRODAN name is synonymous with high quality horticultural stone wool- an inert medium discovered near volcanoes in the 1800’s and later created in factories by GRODAN to grow plants without soil. GRODAN stone wool is produced under the highest quality control standards (ISO 9001) with great consideration to protecting the environment. We are the first substrate producer to have been awarded the prestigious European Eco-label; a more stringent environmental label that is used in Europe. But this is not enough to ensure success. GRODAN is also a solution provider. Through our website and regional representation throughout the world, the company strives to educate growers step by step on how to best use GRODAN products. For over 45 years, GRODAN has been at the cutting edge in the cultivation of safe, healthy and high quality vegetables and plants. GRODAN is the trusted name in the commercial soil-less industry. At GRODAN Inc. (N American subsidiary of GRODAN B.V.), we expand this philosophy of being a solution provider to not only encompass commercial growers, but also home gardeners.

Who Are The Falcons?

 

We’re a dedicated loony bunch of beer drinkers and brewers constantly looking for that next great beer.

We brew beer and we’ll teach you too! – (Beginner’s Extract Classes and Group All-Grain sessions every month)

We throw parties! (3 of them every year)

We judge beer and run competitions to provide anonymous feedback on your brewing process

We tour professional breweries.

If it has something to do with beer, you can pretty much bet we’re involved.

We are the North County Homebrewers Association of San Diego County and we are an official homebrew club registered with the American Homebrewers Association. This group is for brewers or those seriously wanting to learn how to brew. We have an official homebrew event once a month which includes a formal club meeting, educational presentations, as well as the fun of sharing our homebrew. We also hold other related events in addition to the regular monthly meetings. As all other official homebrew clubs, we do charge an annual membership fee which helps to cover club expenses. Our $24 annual fee ($30 for couples) helps in procuring materials necessary to instruct and educate our members, pay for competitions, traveling events, promotional materials, and other related expenses.

Quality Ale and Fermentation Fraternity (QUAFF) is a group of men and women dedicated to the enjoyment and promotion of homebrewing and beer evaluation in the greater San Diego area. We share knowledge, methods, new brew pub and microbrewery discoveries, and good homebrew at monthly meetings and special events.

The club sponsors the America’s Finest City Homebrew Competition, an annual AHA-sanctioned competition open to any and all homebrewers. The club also evaluates and forwards members’ beer to AHA Club-Only competitions for particular beer styles.

We are also involved in the national Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP) activities, and sponsor beer judge study groups and qualifying exams. Many of the local homebrew supply shops offer discounts to QUAFF members.

If you like beer, want to know beer styles better, brew your own beer, or are just curious as to what it takes to brew beer, QUAFF meetings are the place for you to come to get your questions answered.

We meet the 4th Tuesday of each month at 7 PM at Karl Strauss Brewery & Tasting Room located 5985 Santa Fe Street San Diego, CA 92109. Dues are $25 per year.

The mission of the San Diego Brewers Guild is to promote awareness and increase the visibility of fresh, locally brewed beer through education and participation in community events.

It’s hard to deny the momentum of the American craft beer movement when right here in San Diego County we’re experiencing a brewing renaissance of our own. Undoubtedly, San Diego Beer Week has played a pivotal role in spreading the word about our city’s artisanal trade; each year the festivities have drawn increased crowds and participation from businesses that weren’t associated with craft beer previously.

The San Diego Brewer’s Guild was founded in 1997

Society of Barley Engineers is a homebrew club based in North County San Diego, CA. The club was founded in 1994 by a group of avid homebrewers. Our mission is to advocate the exchange of information relating to the art and science of brewing, thereby promoting quality engineered homebrews. The club typically meets at Booze Brothers Brewing in Vista on the first Wednesday evening of every month starting at 6:00PM. Location and date are subject to change, so please check this website for the latest information.
