About the Hogtown Brewers

The Hogtown Craft Beer Festival is organized by The Hogtown Brewers, Gainesville's local non-profit homebrew club! 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 180 members which include a professional brewer (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.
