The Draught Board is an AHA recognized club, and it is one of the oldest Homebrew Clubs in existence after being founded by the late Jim Weathers and his wife Georgia in the early 1970's. Lee Coe, who was one of the original members of the club, worked with Senator Alan Cranston to enact the first legislation that led to the legalization of home brewing in California. Over the years the Draught Board has evolved and grown, but it remains a small club that consists of many long time members who have over thirty years of brewing experience, along with a number of dedicated newcomers who are just starting out.

The Draught Board draws it's membership from all over the San Francisco Bay Area, although the majority of us are from the East Bay. We are always looking for new members, and we welcome anyone regardless of their level of expertise to join us in the craft of brewing beer.

The Draught Board meets at 2pm

on the second Saturday of every month at
