Homebrew Clubs / Homebrew Club Meeting Location
« on: May 04, 2014, 08:01:47 AM »
Now that homebrew rights have expanded in KS to allow normal club activities, I've been talking to some guys about starting a club in our area.  Meeting at member homes may be fine for a while, but I imagine we will need a larger space and a static location fairly fast...ideally free.  Any tips for us?

A LHBS has offered to let us use their space, but it's very small and we will easily outgrow it. 

I don't think our local community centers allow alcohol.  There are no breweries in the general area where we would like to establish the club.

General Homebrew Discussion / Kansas Homebrewers - Proposed Law Change

Just this week in KS, new legislation is being proposed to amend the law to allow consumption by non-family members and at other locations besides the maker's home--including in competitions.  I urge KS residents to contact their legislative representatives to encourage them to support the measure.

House bill:

IMO, here's the best part:
