MakeHaven hosts a home brewing community.


Join the next community brewing session to learn the craft, enjoy tasting and connect with other brewing enthusiasts. No experience necessary. Check Slack #brewing and makehaven.org/events for upcoming activities.


There are 2 badges associated with the homebrewing: the master brewer badge for those who can operate the HERMS setup, and the brewing community badge, which allows the maker access the homebrew tasting tap key.

Brewing Community

Makers interested in joining this community must be 21 years or older and have attended a beer brewing session at MakeHaven, or have plans to attend soon. As part of the brewing community, makers can participate in tastings including using the keg tap key, providing feedback to brewers directly or via the tasting sheeets, and contribute cash to the ingredients donation box when able. Badged members may provide tasting to others who are 21+ and not visibly intoxicated. No one is ever allowed to operate tools under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
