CARBOY enjoys social events such as National Homebrew Day, summer picnics, a Christmas party, an Oktoberfest celebration, and small group brew sessions. To learn more about the craft of homebrewing, Carboy offers brewdays for small groups, discussions on equipment and techniques, and seminars led by experienced brewers or commercial brewmasters. Of course, we also enjoy the sharing of our beer with friends and comparing our beers to the hundreds of commercial examples available. CARBOY was established in July 1995 after working closely with TRUB homebrew club in Durham for six months.
CARBOY has over 70 members that support the club and participate in a variety of activities. For a partial list of our most recent events, please check our calendar which that posts up coming events and a list of traditional programs for the club. CARBOY meets on the 4th Wednesday of each month at rotating locations in the Raleigh, Cary and Apex area. If you have a question about the agenda for the current months meeting, please contact one of our officers.
Membership dues are currently $10 per calendar year. For information on how to JOIN CARBOY, come on out to the next regular meeting or e-mail the Treasurer below.
