BAM is a non-profit homebrewing club with a membership based in the Northern California East Bay (Oakland, Berkeley area) that was formed in June 1990. Our goal is to promote and foster the art and science of brewing quality beer in the home and to have fun doing it.

For the July meeting, Lee will be presenting on how to make a smoke beer, which happens to be the upcoming Style of the Quarter.
This is also a special meeting as it’s the once a year meeting where we all pay dues ($20 / year or $30 for a couple) and get our new membership cards. Come out with cash or credit card and get your new member card right then and there!
We’ll also be handing out the final bottles of BioFine to those who took part in the group buy.
Meeting’s on Thursday July 9th. Come out before 7pm to enjoy Faction beer in the taproom, 7pm to enjoy and share homebrew, and 7:30pm for the meeting.
Hey all – the votes are in, and Rye came away as the clear favorite when selecting the special ingredient for this round of SOQ. Here are a few more details so you can start your brew planning:
- Make the best darn beer with rye in it that you can!
- Pick any style you like, and incorporate rye however you’d like, and in whatever quantity seems best.
- Entries will be judged against both 1) the base style specified; and 2) the nature of the rye character in your beer.
Entries due to Oak Barrel no later than Thursday, June 4th. Brewing sometime in the next 3 weeks will be the prudent approach.
