Holy Foamers: The Local Homebrew Club has Risen Again

(Jackson, Wyo.) - Third time's a charm. This is what Travis Ziehl says about the third iteration of the local Homebrew Club, which kicks off tomorrow night. According to Ziehl, the Homebrew Club originally started in 2010 and was loosely called the Holy Foamers. The group met every other month, but the meetings faded after about six months. The second iteration was started by the brewers at Roadhouse Brewery in 2014, but as their business grew, they were too busy to continue the club. Now, Ziehl and his brewing buddy Doug Cook are reviving the club. The club is still called the Holy Foamers, although they are open to updating the name. Ziehl says the plan is to meet quarterly with a specific purpose. "This week will be organizational. In July, we will do a Big Brew Day where everyone get's together to brew a batch -- kind of an outreach event about the craft. In October, we will do something for Octoberfest at one of the breweries with a tour," said Ziehl. And their plans get bigger from there. "By April 2017, I'd like us to organize a state-wide homebrew contest hosted in Jackson," he added.
