About The Club

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 the largest club in Canada. Club meetings are held on the first Wednesday of every month at 8:00 pm at various breweries and craft beer locations around town (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. Meeting locations are announced on this site in our monthly newsletter and on our Facebook page.

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!

To BBQ or not to BBQ

In these pandemic times, the traditional CTYW barbecue is a hot mess of the not-delicious kind we usually see at this event.
