Chopped Brew-Off

Organize into teams, with each team having to brew to a pre-designated style, with a defined yeast strain. We will be picking two adjuncts at random, and all teams will have to use the adjuncts such that they are noticeable in the finished beer. Beers will be judged by the club at an upcoming meeting.


Welcome to the Handgrenades Homebrew and Craft Beer Club (HHCBC).

We are a Nassau County, NY based group and meet on the third Tuesday of each month at various craft beer bars, restaurants, and breweries.

Our mission:

1) Homebrewing education and events, including clinics, classes, and brew days;
2) Social events like brewery trips, group attendance at tap takeovers, etc., and bottle shares;
3) Promote craft beer culture on Long Island by supporting businesses and organizations that have a craft beer focus.

Please post any suggestions you have for club events, whether homebrew or social.

The club is open to all. Feel free to invite your friends who would have interest.
