SPARGE Homebrew Club

SPARGE, or Springfield-area Practitioners of Ales with Regal Grand Esters, is a homebrew club in the Pioneer Valley. We meet at various breweries or private homes in the valley the second Wednesday of the month.In our monthly meetings, we share homebrews we've made (this can include beer, wine, mead, cider, kvass, alcoholic seltzers, non-alcoholic beers, etc.) and discuss our processes. We ask questions, make recommendations, and learn from each other.In addition to monthly meetings, we get together and do club brews, participate in homebrew competitions, tour breweries, and run the Iron Brewer Competition. At our meetings, we often sample and discuss the results of our group brewing projects.This group is primarily open to anyone age 21+. If you are under the age of 21, you may attend meetings and learn, but may not consume alcoholic beverages.

We will also start collecting dues at the next meeting, which is $25/individual for the year. We will add this to previous dues collected which will give us a budget for the upcoming year.
