My friend and I are looking for a homebrew club in Auckland that we can join. We have been brewing for quite a while at home, but we are struggling with the lack of space, specially for the all grain process. The idea would be a common space with all the facilities/equipment that people can share to brew, ferment and store beers.
I'm not sure if there is any place like this in Auckland, so we are also considering to gather some interested people and make it happen. Maybe rent a place, buy the equipment, all shared by the members of the club. It would be more convenient than brewing at home, with the benefit of socialising and sharing knowledge among the members. Also, achieve things that we could not achieve with the space we have at home.
The idea is similar to a cooperative. And it shouldn't be a big investment.
If you know any club like this, or are interested to join a new club please leave your comment and we can discuss more ideas.
