Meetings and Events

The club meets on the third Monday of the month at BBC Tap Room at 626 East Main St. Our aim is to evaluate homebrew and discuss brewing and beer related matters. We do not meet in August because we are all working so hard at the Kentucky State Fair.

We also maintain an Open Group on Facebook, look for us: LAGERS Homebrew Club

There are June and September picnic/camp outs, and a banquet in January. The brew-ins for the June picnic and January banquet are events in their own right, with plenty of food and beer and an excellent opportunity to observe brewing techniques. Club members are a good source of information about both grain and extract brewing.

LAGERS/MOKH Equipment Swap 2014

The 1st annual LAGERS/MOKH Equipment Swap and Social. It is May 17th from 11am to 3pm in the back parking lot of My Old Kentucky Homebrew - 361 Baxter Ave, Louisville, Kentucky 40204. Please bring out any old brewing equipment that is collecting dust and trade it for something different or some good old fashion cash. We will have the cold plates set up and will be grilling dogs and burgers for lunch. Please bring a side of some kind to share and don't forget to bring homebrew. We will have tables set up, but you should probably bring some chairs. Maybe someone can bring a corn hole set.

We also have 2 brand new (as of August 2011) color t-shirts, seafoam and chili and I believe priced at $16.00. All gear available for purchase during regular meetings.

They have our logo on the front and the "We brew it, we drink it, we talk about it" on the sleeve. The gear will be available for sale during our regular meetings and for those who participated in the GEAR survey; although you are under no obligation, will have first choice on the current stock. We will then sell the gear on a first-come, first-serve basis.
