The Battleground Brewers Guild was founded in Greensboro, North Carolina in November of 2000. We chose to use Battleground in our name because Battleground Avenue is a major road in Greensboro that passes the site of an important Revolutionary war battle between the American General, Nathaniel Greene and the British General, Cornwallis.
Like our forefathers we enjoy a hearty brew or two. We enjoy gathering at a pub, or home, to discourse on about anything, but mostly sampling and discussing beer, homebrewed and commercial. We exchange ideas on brewing and brewing equipment in hopes of advancing our skills as brewers. We have a �Mentor� program for teaching new brewers the steps to brewing an excellent homebrew.
We meet monthly on the 3rd Wednesday at 6:30 PM. Our club calendar will have the most updated location information.
The monthly meetings cover topics such as: making and judging beer styles, ingredient use, brewing methods, yeast preparation, and troubleshooting beer flavors. Members are encouraged to bring a beer that is representative of the style, or a beer they want feedback on, to share with the other members.
Annual events observed are: National Homebrewers Day on the 1st Saturday in May, a family 4th of July party, a family October-Fest party and a members Holiday party.
Our Goals are to provide a place for each member to learn and teach about the craft of homebrewing with the support of others that share the same goal. New brewer, old brewer, no matter what level of experience all can contribute to the craft. To remember not to get too serious the key is �Relax and Have a Home Brew.�
The membership dues are $25 annually. When paid, that will include admission to all club events as well as a 10% discount on all purchases from
Big Dan's Brew Shed, Triad Homebrew Supply and Alternative Beverages in Charlotte.
