Please note: BEEWBC has decided to merge membership with BEWBC to combine resources. Efforts will be taken to serve a more geographically dispersed combined club.
Previous BEEWBC members should renew with the BEWBC form below.
The Boeing Employees Wine and Beer Makers Club began in 1971 strictly as a wine making club. In the mid-80's the club began to offer a wide variety of beer making supplies and many members began to join the club to brew better beer.
We currently offer a variety of both wine and beer events, classes, and social activities. The monthly meetings, which usually alternate between wine and beer, typically include a presentation by a knowledgeable guest speaker. By sharing experiences and sampling each others creations we all enhance our skill and knowledge in this ancient art.
