We are the Central Coast Zymurgeeks, a loose group of home brewers and wannabe home brewers genuinely interested in learning more about this fascinating art. Our members are scattered everywhere from the stately redwoods of Boulder Creek to the lush farmlands of Watsonville, California. We meet monthly and we encourage interested folks to join us. 

While most of us brew beer, we are interested in all forms of fermentation, from Sauerkraut to Bread. We have members that make Ciders, Meads, Kefir, and Kombucha.


The next meeting is Sunday July 17, at Woodhouse Blending and Brewing in Santa Cruz – 1pm business meeting, 2 pm presentation and social time. Address: 119 Madrone St. Santa Cruz, CA. 95060. Professor Will is going to present on New Zealand hops.

The June meeting at Steel Bonnet Brewery in Scotts Valley started with a competition and judging. Will Rush took home the win for the wort share beer, and Dave Bossie in the English IPA category. Lots of good beer from all our brewers.

After a brief  business meeting we had a wonderful presentation on German Hops by Phil Carpenter, thanks Phil!
