We have our club meetings from 6:30pm on the first Thursday of each month. You will find details of the next meeting in the sidebar and in the announcements section.
There are no fees, dues or entry requirements for LAB, membership is as simple as turning up to a meeting. After that, members get access to our informative forum and Slack channel.
The meetings tend to follow a similar schedule each month: news, introductions and questions, then a presentation or discussion on some aspect of brewing, followed by the tasting of members beers where they can get constructive feedback to help them improve their brewing. Everyone is welcome to bring beer for the tasting session, please make sure you bring at least 2l to ensure there’s enough to go round.
Our meetings cater for a wide range of ages, and all levels of experience — from beginners looking to learn through to experts honing their technique. Although we tend to focus on beer, brewers of wine, mead, cider and other fermented beverages are also welcome.
Once a year the club organises and runs the London & South East Craft Brewing Competition.
The competition is open to anyone and everyone, and brewers of all skill levels are encouraged to enter. The competition is run according to the BJCP guidelines, and the event itself is an enjoyable day out sampling the competition entries.
Please see the competition website for more details:
The next competition is Lager Than Life, on the 7th March. Places are full, but judges and stewards, or anyone who just wants to help out are encouraged to register!
