I am a member of the local homebrew club, but I really haven't tapped their resources much. That sounds like a good idea.
In my experience, your homebrew club s what you make of it. If everyone sits around and just drinks beer with no direction or focus, it makes it a lot harder. A club that is working towards making the club members better brewers through education and involvement is a wonderful thing.
Agree. There are some good and constructive clubs and then there are some not so good clubs. But a good one with knowledgeable and (here's they key) HELPFULL members can really turn you in the right direction. Be warry of a club that just sits around and drinks beer and shoots the bull most they time and be equally wary of clubs that only focus on criticism.
