Homebrew Clubs in Connecticut

Fermenters of Central Connecticut (F.O.C.C.T.)

Fermenters of Central Connecticut is a club based around sharing knowledge, techniques, and final products of all types of fermentations: beer, wine, cider, mead, fermented food, and more.

We meet at 7:00 p.m. on the second Thursday of every month at Brew and Wine Hobby in East Hartford. Each meeting is focused around a particular topic followed by an open sharing and discussion of anything, whether or not it fits the month's topic. Check the Calendar for our upcoming meetings and information on our past meetings.


These meetings are open to anyone and we welcome all levels of skill, from the prospective brewer considering the hobby to a life long vintner.
