Since 1996, the BABBLE Homebrewers Club of Lake County has brought homebrewing enthusiasts across the region together to share their knowledge and passion for brewing. BABBLE members come from a wide range of skill levels, including extract, all-grain, HERMS, RIMS, and professional brewers. In addition to beer, members also produce meads, ciders, and the occasional bottle of wine as part of their brewing activities.



Our May 28th meeting: at Grow Masters in Gurnee, we had a wide range of homebrew to sample. Including an English IPA, Spiced Wheat, French Saison, Belgian Tripel, two SMASH beers to compare, a Pale Ale, and Munich Dunkel Lager (and some more that I missed). We held Round Three of our Iron Brewer competition, and we learned a lot and enjoyed a fantastic variety of meads during and after a talk by Mead specialist Pat Duby.




BABBLE meetings are held on the 4th Thursday of the month (2nd Thursday of the month in Nov. and Dec.) at 7:30PM

The June meeting will be at The Craft Beer store at 131 N Milwaukee Ave, Libertyville. 

Meeting is scheduled for Thursday, June 25th at 7:30.

Meetings are often held at Whirleyball, 285 Center Drive in Vernon Hills, but follow this page as we do move the meeting place around from time to time.
