Gold Country Brewers Association is a nationally recognized educational and social organization. We were founded in 1982 to promote homebrewing excellence. If you are a beginning brewer, an advanced brewer, or just interested in the art and science of a well made beer, GCBA is the place for you. Our activities are designed for novices and experts alike. Our monthly meetings feature guest speakers and monthly styles. Our quarterly public brewing days allow us to roll out our 45-gallon mobile brewery, “Da BOAT.” Our annual homebrew competition, Celebrewtion, receives entries from some of the region’s top homebrewers, many of whom are GCBA members. We also get to show off our beers at regional events such as the West Coast Brewers’ Festival and the California Brewers’ Festival. Learn about evaluating beers from our Beer Judge Certification Program certified judges. And of course, enjoy a cold one with some friends….
