Jack Of All Brews was the brain child of Eric Wentling. He talked of
looking for a brewing club in the Twin Cities SW metro with fellow founding member and
back-yard neighbor J.D. Ludford as they often shared their latest
brewing concoctions together. After not having much luck
finding a small local club, he thought if they could find enough
local home brewers, a new club could be created. J.D. brought
in his friend Mike and Eric found a co-worker, Ty (and Ty had a friend
Jim)...there was now enough people to form a club.
The first meeting was held at Eric's house on September 15, 2006. The
name "Jack Of All Brews" was suggested by Ty Harrison at the first
meeting, and voted on unanimously as the official name of the club.
Soon after, Eric registered the name with AHA (American
Homebrewers Association), ID#: 000171744
Since its humble beginning, Jack Of All Brews has grown by leaps and bounds.
We continue to see new members at most meetings and the hobby seems to be exploding in recent years.
We now boast members who are BJCP judges, professional brewers, and other industry professionals.
Oh, and our members' beer has become so much more incredible than we ever expected back at the start!
