I'm trying to get info on any Kansas City area HB clubs.

There are three.

KC Bier Meisters:
http://www.kcbiermeisters.org/

This is the most formal of the clubs, though it is very laid back. It's also the oldest club and has been AHA Club of the Year but the club is more socially focused these days. Meets third Friday of the month at 50th and Rainbow. This is the club I belong to.

ZZ Hops:

Third Tuesday in Lee's Summit. I went to one meeting, I think they are a little more loose than KC Bier Meisters. Mostly the location didn't work for me.

Jayhops:

This is kind of a club for people who don't want to be in a club. The don't have regular meetings but they do have social events and brew together etc.

For the first two clubs the best thing to do is to show up for a meeting or two and feel the club out. The locations are different so that may be important to you. All three clubs have several very good brewers.

Thanks for the detailed info. I'm in Independence so ZZ Hops may be closer. I do want to check out your club too.

Cheers
