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 homebrew competition, Babble Brew-Off 2015: The American Cup, will be held on August 15th, 2015. Click the link above to go to the competition website to register your winning beers. You can also sign up to steward or judge! Registration is open until August 8th!
