About us

True Grist Homebrew Club formed in 2016 as a volunteer-based non-profit association to promote homebrewing excellence in Guelph, Cambridge, and Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario.

While the group’s focus is mainly beer brewing, our members also make, discuss, and share cider, mead, and wine.


We hold monthly meetings on the second Wednesday of every month to share our latest creations and discuss beer styles, ingredients, and brewing techniques. In between meetings, these discussions continue on our forum. True Grist receives support from many local breweries and most Club Meetings are held at these breweries. Each month we rotate meeting locations through our membership area.

Special Events and Bulk Buys

True Grist has several special events throughout the year including bulk buys, collaboration brews, educational and social events. You can see recaps of most of these events with lots of pictures on our club blog. You can also catch up on club announcements by going through our newsletter archive.


Register as a True Grist member for free. We hope you will introduce yourself on the club forum and share some homebrew with us at one of our upcoming events. Some member privileges, such as bulk buy participation, are reserved to those who have paid annual dues.
