Ventura Independent Beer Enthusiasts

A Homebrew Club in Ventura County, California

Monthly Meeting: July 2017

July 2017 Board

As usual, a good mix of homebrew styles was available at the July 2017 meeting. Also a discussion of upcoming pouring events.

News for July 2017:

Pouring Events

Santa Barbara Fermentation Festival: Sunday September 10. We will need people to help pour and of course beer/cider/mead to serve. This is always a fun time. They are changing it up a bit this year, with the alcohol servers more centrally located within the Fest grounds. More foot traffic for us!


Totally Local VC Homebrew Challenge: Sunday September 24. As we did last year, VIBE is helping Totally Local VC put on a Homebrew Challenge Competition during the Taste of Local Festival. Rather than have clubs pour and win prizes, each homebrewer submits their own single beer for competition in a People’s Choice style contest. There is prize money involved for the winner! If you want to enter, please contact for entry info. We are looking for up to 15 people.

Ventura County Fair Homebrew Competition: Entries July 28 and 29 at the Fair, Judging July 30. Contact to sign up for judging.
