About Us

The Marquette Home Brewers is a social and educational club centered around the hobby and craft of home brewing.  We normally meet the second Wednesday of each month at the Marquette Brewing Cooperative at 501 S Lake St in Marquette at 6:30 PM.  We also have a monthly, informal social gathering called the “Last Wednesday Club,” which meets at one of the local breweries for conversation and camaraderie (and beer, of course).  Our membership includes first-time brewers, 25-year veterans, and everything in between.  Both the monthly meeting and the Last Wednesday Club are open and free of charge to anyone interested in our club.  If you wish to become a member, yearly dues are $24 per person or $36 for a couple.

We are an AHA (American Homebrewers’ Association) sanctioned club, and we participate in AHA events such as Big Brew Day, Learn to Homebrew Day, and others.  We also have competitions within the club and hold events such as beer tours, workshops, experiments, and other educational and social functions throughout the year.  Check this website for current information regarding our monthly meetings and other events.

Mystery Science Corner

A big portion of the Home Brewers philosophy is built around education, and one of the best ways to expand your education is to experiment. We’ve done a few experiments over the years, some successful and some failures, and we do our best to catalog them all here.
