When I first started home brewing, I tried to find a local home brew club around the Durban area. Worthog brewers had a Durban branch, but it seemed largely inactive. It was very easy to come to the conclusion that there were almost no active home brewers in the entire Durban area. Thankfully that is about to change!
John Little, from 1000 Hills Chef School, has put a tremendous effort into getting home brewers from around Durban to come together and form East Coast Brewers. Our first meeting was on the 19th of October, and with nearly 20 people attending (and several more not present with apologies), things are looking up. The constitution was approved, and various positions voted on, and many ideas put forward. Over the next year we should see several event aimed at promoting craft beers, and hopefully a lot of press promoting the hobby of home brewing.
