The October business meeting will be Saturday October 1st at the Titletown Depot upstairs.

There will be a second reading of the updated bylaws, and the style of the month is Brown IPA.

As always, the meetings are open to the public so if you just want to check it out or are curious about homebrewing beer,

 wine, or any other fermented beverage (mostly beer) stop on by and check out a meeting.

We always welcome new faces and brewers.

Aaand We're Back!

Thanks for sticking with us during these dark days.

We have the site limping along again.

It will take some time but over the next few weeks I will be upgrading the site,

 so if it looks a bit different that means I'm doing my job.

You can continue using the site as you did, or didn't, in the past.

I will let you all know if there needs to be some down time while everything is migrated.

Thanks for your patience.

Rackers Newsflash


It's not written in stone yet, but we are working on a multi-club northeast WI club brew at Stillmank Brewing late winter/early spring 2017.

If I remember correctly, Saturday, March 4th, 2017 was tentatively agreed upon pending approval of the other clubs involved and our generous host.

This promises to be an epic event. Mark your calendars and check back often for updates.

Stop in at Stillmank Brewing in the mean time and try some of the new brews on tap.

I, personally, was pleasantly surprised with 6252 and Crimson Tart. Had to bring home a "crowler" of each after today's Octoberfest celebration, great time btw.
