The Birmingham Chapter meets monthly, specifically every third Wednesday of the month, at locations varying from breweries to local businesses. Outside of our monthly newsletter, these meetings provide a way for our members to discuss educational opportunities, collaborate on event planning, and perhaps, more importantly, socialize while enjoying great beers with great company. Our annual capstone event is the Magic City Brewfest, encompassing worldly brews, with a smaller event in the fall, Fall FestivAle, focused specifically on local Alabama breweries. Our member exclusive events include our annual Holiday party, Summer Barbeque, and periodic beer samplings/food pairings. Traditionally, we partner up with other non-profits or local organizations in and around the community to provide volunteers/services for events, such as the Sidewalk Film Festival, Uncorked on the Green, and Brew at the Zoo. We also have a passionate barbeque team that has won awards at local barbeque competitions such as Birmingham’s Stokin’ the Fire and BBQ for Building – an annual event benefiting Habitat for Humanity. To further our MO of beer education, we will offer beer education opportunities through programs such as Cicerone and BJCP. We are always looking for the opportunity to meet, greet, and/or teach fellow brew lovers.
