About Us:

The Boeing Employees Wine and Beer Makers Club began in 1971 strictly as a wine making club. In the mid-80's the club began to offer a wide variety of beer making supplies and many members began to join the club to brew better beer.

We currently offer a variety of both wine and beer events, classes, and social activities. The monthly meetings, which usually alternate between wine and beer, typically include a presentation by a knowledgeable guest speaker. By sharing experiences and sampling each others creations we all enhance our skill and knowledge in this ancient art.

  • Seminars and Speakers - Wine and beer experts of recognized standing discuss subjects of general interest.

  • Wine Competitions - Extensive varieties of wine made by members are judged by experts.

  • Homebrew Competitions - Beers made by members are professionally judged.
