About the Hogtown Brewers

The Hogtown Craft Beer Festival is organized by The Hogtown Brewers, Gainesville's local non-profit homebrew club (winner of the 2016 AHA Radegast Homebrew Club of the Year)! Since 1985, the Hogtown Brewers have been promoting brewing and craft beer through classes, educational brewing events, competitions, beer/food pairings, and other activities.

We currently have over 200 members which include multiple professional brewers (guess who?), numerous medal winners in state and regional competitions, plus a healthy gaggle of BJCP homebrew competition judges (including master and national level judges). Our members are from a diverse range of backgrounds and professions, but we all share a passion for brewing, beer science, and all things craft beer.
