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. This month (April), we had speakers from Imperial Yeast. For information on their great CANNED yeasts that require no starter (twice the cell count of Wyeast and triple that of Whitelabs), look here!


 

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

Spring Fling Homebrew competition - Bend OR, April 21. COHO's Annual competition is over! See the results here!

Hone Your Homebrewing Skills with low-cost classes taught at COCC's off-campus home-brewing facility in Redmond near the airport. Check out the upcoming available classes info here!

Bottling And Keg Washing Position

Hiring a part time position, 20-30 hrs per week, with a possibility of upgrading to a full time position as the brewery expands.  Candidate should have a firm grasp on brewery sanitation processes and the negative effects of oxygen on the quality of beer. 


  • Candidate should be mechanically inclined and self-motivated. 
  • Candidate should obviously have a love of beer. 
  • Most shifts will start in the afternoon (approximately 3 pm)
  • Clean driving record a must.
  • Homebrewing experience is acceptable.
  • $11/hr plus lots of low fills
  • Candidate should see this as an opportunity to get into the industry without experience or education and have a chance to move up in the ranks as we expand. AKA, this is not the most glamorous job but it gets your foot in the door! 


Candidates can drop off resumes at Bend Brewing Co. (1019 NW Brooks St. Bend, OR) between 8:30am-7:00pm M-F. 

Thank you, 

Packy Deenihan
