Read more about The Carolina BrewMasters and get some ideas for your club!
A great homebrew club does many things in addition to brewing. These clubs also focus on experimenting, learning, education and volunteer work. Exceptional clubs work hard make an impact on their community.
The Radegast Club of the Year Award, named for the Slavic god of hospitality and the creator of beer, is an achievement not obtained through competition, but an award won for doing great things. The award will be given once a year and announced at the American Homebrewers Association (AHA) National Homebrewers Conference.
To win this award, AHA-registered clubs have to show what activities set them apart as an awesome group in their community.
Brewdays, festivals, demonstrations or charity, we want to hear about anything that makes you a proud member of your homebrew club. The club that receives the honor of Radegast Club of the Year will receive an award to display and a stipend for their chosen charity.
