Welcome To Our Website

The Cowtown Yeast Wranglers are a Calgary-based club of homebrewers and beer enthusiasts. The club was founded in 2007 and has now grown to over 170 active members, making it the largest beer and homebrew club in Canada. We hold monthly club meetings, which are held at the Wild Rose Brewery on the first Wednesday of each month at 8:00 pm (except in the summer months). Meeting activities vary, but typically they begin with a discussion of club business, followed by technical brewing presentations and discussion, followed by beer evaluation.

Currently, our club members include home brewers, pro brewers, certified beer judges,  and beer aficionados of all levels. Our members also include beginning brewers and those interested in beer and the brewing process. Come join our online discussion Forum and meet the gang. We welcome all levels of beer and brewing expertise, and the only prerequisite is that you have an interest and enthusiasm for our favourite beverage -- beer! Cheers!
