Christchurch Home Brewers Association are a group of passionate home brewers who meet each month to share some brews and geek out about beer. In 2016 we started charging membership subscriptions ($45 per year) so we could facilitate higher calibre events.

We usually meet on a Friday night, somewhere around the middle of each month, in a public place. Exact dates and hosting venues vary. We usually have 3-4 competitions each year, 3-4 case swaps, and various brewer talks and sometimes tours. We currently have around 60 official members.


We invite casual members to attend meetings for a $5 fee. Your first meeting is free, and any causal fees you pay get deducted off your annual subscription if you decide to join.

To become a member, deposit $45 into the Christchurch Home Brewers Association bank account. Contact our treasurer for the account number.
