Means of Production

We brewers are makers. We filter raw materials through a means of production and make a product. Weather you are brewing with a pot and a cooler mash tun or a RIMS system you own the means. Homebrewers are the capital owners, the executive, the worker, the artist, and most importantly the consumer.

Brewing is Creating

I’ve always been a creative guy. For example, when I was a kid I used to draw sunsets and mountains on everything. I programmed my first computer when I was around 12 which by today’s standards is over the hill for such precociousness but back then I was the only kid I knew who could program a computer.

Today I still program computers and brew beer as a creative outlets. Creating new beer recipes is only one aspect of the brewing process that is creative. There’s also the bottle labels, kegerator and fermenter placards, and other ancillary do-dads and thingamajigs we Homebrewers get to play with.

Who we are

Hello, and welcome to the Iredell Brewers United homebrew club website. We are a laid back but¬†active club full of beer nerds and homebrewers. We all enjoy a good beer, especially ones we’ve made ourselves, as well as sharing good beer with fellow enthusiasts.

We meet the 1st Tuesday of every month at Ghostface Brewing at 7pm. Meetings consist of event announcements, homebrew education, homebrew featured spotlight, and of course, general homebrew sampling. All are welcome, but try to bring a homebrew if you can!
