The Dukes of Ale homebrew club was formed in January 1989 and we held our first meeting in April 1989.
- Maintain quality in the production of homebrewed beer.
- Promote public awareness and appreciation of the quality and variety of beer through education, research and the collection and dissemination of information.
- Serve as a forum for the technological and cross-cultural aspects of the art of brewing.
- To encourage responsible use of beer as an alcoholic beverage.
We generally meet on the first Wednesday of the month starting at 6:30pm. The location varies but is announced on the front page of this website a week or so before the meeting.
We try to make the meetings both educational and social, discussing and tasting different styles each month.
Meetings are a great opportunity to learn more about beer styles and to have your beers tasted and evaluated in a semi-formal setting.
Special events range from club campouts and potlucks to brewery tours and club brews. We also conduct the judging for the New Mexico State Fair ProAm, evaluating beers brewed by amateurs and commercial breweries. There are other times that club members provide volunteer help at beer festivals.
