Welcome To Central Florida Home Brewers
For over 30 years the Central Florida Home Brewers Association has celebrated the craft of home brewing. Our club offers a variety of activities designed to promote home brewing as well as the appreciation of good beer.
Whether new to home brewing, an experienced veteran of the craft, or just want to enjoy and learn about the craft and about great beer, the Central Florida Home Brewers is excited to have you join us!

EducationWe're constantly developing and expanding our in-club education program.
Better home brewing practices, new home brewing innovations and ideas, and BJCP test preparation and sensory training are just part of our planned in-club education series.
EventsFestivals, and parties. Pub crawls and Brew days. There's always something to do!
Along with our annual Sunshine Challenge and Stouts and Stogies events, we participate in many of the local beer festivals and organize member parties and group brew days.
Our members range from those who have been with the club since its foundation and newer members whose ages range widely from college age to retirement age. Due in part to BJCP related classes involving beer styles and sensory training, beer school classes before the meetings, and hands on training of stewards and judges we have had several members become professional brewers at locations throughout Florida and the United States.
We also have some of our seniors members that are nationally recognized BJCP judges and advisors that have been active in assisting the BJCP organization to further that program, and also giving critical input on the process of new beer style guidelines as appropriate. So join us at one of our meetings or contact us if you have any questions.And remember, ‘Drink Better Beer’.
