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.
Although we have many serious brewers with years of experience, our club also caters to beginners. Homebrewers are eager to share their 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.
Our club celebrated its 20th Anniversary in 2014
To help celebrate our club's 20th Anniversary, there were some special programs we undertook in 2014, including:
- Special Edition embroidered and screen-printed club-logo work shirts, subsidized in part with club funds;
- Engraved 20th Anniversary edition tasting glasses given to all club members;
- Two 53-gallon Four Roses bourbon barrels were purchased by the club, for members to fill with several different beers/meads each. These two barrels represent assets in which club members will potentially benefit for years to come, as members participate in refills of the barrels.ur 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 on the last Saturday 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.

GrogTags are vinyl, re-useable labels that are perfect for bottles, growlers, carboys and kegs. They also produce custom coasters, signs, bottle caps, placemats, and permanent keg stickers. 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!
