Carroll County, Maryland's Homebrew Club Since 1994

Since 1994, the Midnight Homebrewers' League has been Carroll County, Maryland's homebrew club, with members drawn from throughout Maryland, Southern Pennsylvania, and Virginia.  Our membership is diverse, but we are united by two things: the love of great beer, and the desire to make it ourselves.

Our club is celebrating its 20th Anniversary throughout 2014
Club Members have access to the Members Only Area of this site (see link in the menu at left), which we will try to keep updated with news and events related to our 20th Anniversary celebration.

Although we have many serious brewers with years of experience, our club also caters to beginners.  Homebrewers are eager to share the love of our hobby with anyone who will listen.  We are generous with our time and look forward to showing new brewers how to make great beer at home, the very first time out.  Even if you're not a member, please come to one of the brewing events shown on our calendar.

We are also the organizing club for the annual Maryland Microbrewery Festival Homebrew Competition.  The festival and competition are held every September.

Please browse our site and if you have any questions, we'd love to hear from you.  The Members Only Area has amazing but private content that only our club members can access.  The smartest thing you could do today, since you're already here, is to click on the Membership Information page and join our club.

And while you're here, please consider visiting our partners, GrogTag and the American Homebrewers Association (A.H.A.).

GrogTags are vinyl, re-useable labels that are perfect for bottles, growlers, carboys and kegs.  We saw them at the National Homebrewers Conference and were very impressed!  Upload your own designs or use one of theirs.  The best option is to create blank labels that you can write on with dry erase markers, move them from carboy to keg, and wipe them clean to re-use for your next batch!  Using this link not only gets you a 10% discount, but earns your favorite homebrew club a 10% commission on your purchase as well.  That's a win-win!

American Homebrewers Association

If you join, or renew your membership in, the American Homebrewers Association through this partner link, the A.H.A. will rebate a portion of your dues to our club!  A.H.A. membership (which is not a part of your club membership) includes:
  ▪ Zymurgy magazine, the best homebrewing magazine out there.
  ▪ Pub discounts around the country
