BrewVic Homebrewing Club - Inaugural Meeting

The first meeting of the new (and to my knowledge only) homebrew group in Victoria, BrewVic, is on the horizon, kicking off this Saturday, November 5th at 10 am. BrewVic is centred in the beer capital of Canada, Victoria, BC, but the VIC in the name stands for Vancouver Island, Cascadia, showing its close connection to the Island as a whole and to the region of Cascadia.
The meeting will be held outside Victoria's newest brewery, Hoyne Brewing, located at 101-2740 Bridge St. in the Rock Bay industrial area near the Bay Street Bridge. Myself and two of my illustrious comrades in beer will be conducting brews for all to see as the 5th happens to be Learn to Homebrew Day. For all those beer geeks out there we will be brewing American Pale Ales, and Im getting pretty excited about my recipe as I'll be trying out some new hopping techniques. Come on down and check out the action, there will be burgers by donation, and there will be a couple short presentations on homebrewing and the style we will be brewing. Whether you've never brewed before or are an award winning brewmaster we'd love to see you out to support the new group. For more information on BrewVic check out the fancy new website.
