Congratulations to Chris Harper & Seth Klann for Winning the Central Oregon Pro-Am!

Chris Harper's peach Berliner weisse, Fruit Wagon—brewed in conjunction with Mecca Grade Estate Malt & Tap Room—won by a single vote over Tim O'Brian's imperial stout, Demon Star, brewed with Porter Brewing Co. Third place went to Troy Whiteid for his Irish Red Ale, Irish I Had More, brewed with Boneyard Beer.

All of us at COHO would like to extend a big thank you to Deschutes Brewery and Boneyard Pub for hosting our homebrew and pro tastings, the homebrewers who participated, the pro breweries who teamed with our lucky homebrewers, and everyone who came out to the tasting at the Boneyard Pub on November 5th. We can't wait for the next Pro-Am!

The Central Oregon Homebrewers Organization meets on the 3rd Wednesday of each month. We are once again meeting at the Aspen Ridge Retirement Community on Bend's east side. If you're attending a meeting, please follow the club's and Aspen Ridge's COVID-19 policies. Thank you! 

Did you miss the last meeting? Here's a recap of the previous Club Meetings.

Education Sessions:

Each month, the club tries to schedule a training session of some kind, often with guest presenters from the local breweries. There's also lots of homebrew to sample.


  • Social time starts - 6:30 PM
  • Club meeting starts - 7:00 PM
  • Meeting adjourns - 9:00 PM
  • Bring your homebrew
    • Remember, you can often learn a lot more from the bad beers you make than the good ones, so bring 'em all in and share! There are many experienced brewers at each meeting who are happy to discuss your beer's pros and cons.
    • Bring your own cup to avoid waste
  • Potluck style food during social hour
  • Most meetings contain an educational session
  • Monthly raffle (donated items like beer, brewery swag, hops, and equipment are always appreciated)
  • Come out and enjoy some beer with a fun group of people!

Q3 2022 Club Competition

Our Q3 Club Competition is for BJCP Category 34A Clone Beer, but we're putting a little spin on it: brewers will clone a commercial beer from an Oregon brewery, and submit it alongside the real thing. Entries are due by Saturday, August 20th. Contact Karen to arrange drop-off (check recent newsletters for her contact info, or email an officer).

Grain Available at Brooks'

Brooks has purchased a large quantity of Mecca Grade Estate Malt and is selling it at-cost from his house. We ask that you make a small donation (25-50 cents) per pound, where possible, to help support the club. Grain starts at $1.25/lb and available malts include pilsner, brewer's 2-row, Vienna, Munich, white wheat, and light crystal. A scale and mill are on-site. Please contact Brooks to arrange pickup.

You can now upload the photos that you take at club events to the club for use on our Website, Facebook Page, and slideshows at club meetings.
