Join Us For a Meeting
The Central Oregon Homebrewers Organization meets on the 3rd Wednesday of each month. See the Events section for exact dates and location.

Did you miss the last meeting? Here's a recap of the previous Club Meetings.

What to Expect:

Education Sessions:

Each month, the club tries to schedule a training session of some kind, often with guest presenters from the local breweries.  There are also lot's of homebrews to sample.
 

Schedule -
Social time starts at 6:30 PM
Club meeting starts at 7:00 PM
Meeting adjourns at 9:00 PM
  • Bring your homebrew
    • Remember, you can often learn a lot more from the bad beers you make, than the good ones.  So bring em in and share.  There are many experienced brewers to discuss the pros and cons of your beer.
    • Bring your own cup to avoid waste
  • Pot luck style food during social hour
  • Every meeting contains an educational session (click on COHO General Meeting link under Upcoming Events for more information)
  • Monthly raffle (Donation of items for the monthly raffle always appreciated)
  • Come out and enjoy some beer with a fun group of people

What's Happening

Registration is open for our annual competition, Spring Fling! This year's dates are Friday, April 26 through Sunday, April 28, and entries are due by April 10. Now is the time to sign up and start brewing your best beer for the competition!

Here's a quick reminder of guidelines:

  • The comp is open to all beer, mead, and cider represented in the 2015 BJCP Style Guidelines.
  • All entries must be in 12-ounce or 350ml crown-capped bottles, no swing-tops.
  • Attach bottle labels with rubber bands only; DO NOT tape or glue labels to the bottle!
  • Entry fee is $7 per entry.
  • Register your account and submit your entries on the Spring Fling website.
  • The Brew Shop will be the drop-off point for registered beers.
  • Brewers may enter more than one beer in each category but may enter each subcategory only once.

We will be judging on Friday and Saturday, April 26 and 27, and the Best of Show and the Awards Ceremony will be held Sunday the 28th at Aspen Ridge.

And as always we will need volunteers for judging, stewarding, food, and admin -- we'll be talking it up and recruiting at our monthly meetings.

Happy brewing!

Our May Club Competition will be for BCJP style category 10, German Wheat Beer. There are three sub-styles in this category: 10A Weissbier, 10B Dunkles Weissbier, and 10C Weizenbock. These wheat ales can be pale or dark and should contain that distinctive banana and clove yeast character appropriate to the style. Entries due by Saturday, May 4 at The Brew Shop.

Mark your calendars -- on May 19, Monkless Belgian Ales will be holding a fundraiser for COHO! Details to come.

New website Feature! You can now upload the photos that you take at club events to the club for use on our Website, Facebook Page, and slideshows at club meetings.
