Are You an SOB?

You love good beer. You look forward to the experience of trying a beer you’ve never had before. You’re fascinated by the culture of beer and its unprecedented revival. You’re amazed by the awakening of your own palate and the fact that you’re turning into a beer geek. The next step is obvious. You begin brewing your own. Here’s a way to get started.

The Society of Oshkosh Brewers, more commonly known as the SOBs, will hold one of their regular club meetings tomorrow night (Wednesday, January 15) beginning at 7 p.m. at O’Marro’s Public House in Oshkosh. You don’t have to be a member to sit in and bend elbows with about 40 or so men and women who are as infatuated with beer as you are. Better yet, most of them are brewers and happy to share everything they know about the craft of making beer, mead, cider and wine at home. If you’re looking to start brewing, but not sure where to start, these are the people to talk to.

If you go, here’s what to expect: the club assembles in the banquet room of O’Marro’s. There’s always someone from the club hanging around the door; just walk up and tell them you’re there to check things out. They’ll send you in the right direction. After a brief bit of club business, the homebrew will start going around and the gab about brewing and beer begins. It’s always a casual affair and everyone is welcome. For more about the SOBs, check out their About Us page on the SOB website. Better yet, just come on down to O’Marro’s tomorrow and say hello. You look like you could use a beer.
