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.

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.

We are also the organizing club for the annual Maryland Microbrewery Festival Homebrew Competition.

The Maryland Microbrewery Festival is scheduled for Saturday, September 30th, 2023.

Please browse our site and if you have any questions, we'd love to hear from you.

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

GrogTags are vinyl, reusable labels that are perfect for bottles, growlers, carboys and kegs. They also produce custom coasters, signs, bottle caps, place mats, 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!

  • Zymurgy magazine, the best homebrewing magazine out there (Digital or Print)

Men over 40: Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in American men, and is projected to result in 31,620 deaths in the United States in 2019. Do yourselves and those who love you a favor, and get your PSA tested. If your doctor doesn't suggest it, insist on it. It's a simple blood test that can save your life. Here is a testimony from our former club president:

"Current medical "wisdom" being promoted by federal medicrats is that testing for prostate cancer is over-used, leading to unnecessary treatment. Really? Well, I was diagnosed and treated for advanced prostate cancer at age 52. I had no symptoms. After diagnosis, surgery, and tissue biopsy, it was discovered that my cancer was particularly aggressive, and had already spread. If I hadn't been tested, diagnosed and treated aggressively when I was, there was a good chance I would not have reached age 60.

Because of those medicrat recommendations, many men are putting off getting tested for early detection, which has resulted in more patients being diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer, when it is more difficult to treat."
