Water Testing is still available to JRHB Members for only $3!  Bring your sample to any JRHB Meeting.  Note: we are currently testing and posting results for Richmond/Mechanicsville  Municipal Water monthly, so please bring samples from other sources (wells, other jurisdictions, water you have treated somehow, etc.)


A big thank you goes out to Bob and Jeanne for all your years supporting us at the Weekend Brewer.  Your contribution to our craft is significant and will be missed.  We hope you will continue to show up and share your advice and stories with the club and perhaps also brew with us occasionally.  Have a wonderful retirement!


It's 2015 - have you paid your dues?
