Welcome to the BrewBlog for The Beer Barons of Milwaukee

For the club web site click here.

The club was established in 1989 and is a group of around 200 homebrewers and beer enthusiasts who meet monthly to taste and talk about beer and brewing. New members are always welcome. Though we try hard to bring in new people who are really hopped up on brewing, you need not be a homebrewer to attend our meetings or become a member! Anybody interested in learning more about beer and brewing is welcome.

Members come from communities all around the south-eastern Wisconsin, ranging from Hartford to East Troy, and northern Illinois. We span the range of homebrewing experience and methods, from the first time homebrewers with one (or sometimes none) batch under his or her belt, to brewers who have been at it for 15 years or more. From kit brewing to 10+ gallon all-grain batches. If you''''re in the south-eastern Wisconsin or northern Illinois area and you want to learn how to brew better beer, whatever your current level may be, this is the club for you.
