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.

We are an inclusive homebrew club. Anybody with an interest in homebrewing is welcome to join us, participate in our events, and expect respect and equal treatment while doing so. Expectations of Members are detailed in our Code of Conduct.

While the Club’s focus is on beer brewing, our members also make/discuss/share cider, mead, and wine!


We hold regular meetings 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 special events from time to time 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


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.
