Does anyone know if the San Andreas Malts are still operational or are they mostly dormant?
I tried contacting them a couple of times after I relocated back to SF in late 2009. I never heard back from a human being, though once in a while I would get a group email which suggested some people who had known one another a long long time were getting together for a time-honored tradition of some sort. The website seems to have not been updated since early 2007. The newsletter faded out in early 2003. The site does link out to a blog. but if you were a newcomer, the posts wouldn't really suggest "we are a homebrew club."
So I think it's fair to say that some of the original members may still be around and may still get together from time to time, but the group *as* a homebrew club by any reasonable definition of the phrase is dormant.
There are definitely plenty of homebrewers in the city, including some who meet in a club-like manner, and I would wager the vast majority of them (and none of the newer/younger brewers) have never heard of the San Andreas Malts.
