Palmetto State’s Brewing Club
We are dedicated to producing and consuming quality beer. If you share our passion, you are cordially invited to become a member of an active fun loving bunch of guys and gals. We brew at all levels, from extract kits to all-grain. Think you might be interested but do not know where to start? This is the place! We love to share our knowledge and borrow others’ ideas. Come see us. We love to sample each others’ beer, so feel free to bring your best (or worst, if you want constructive criticism).
Every year PSB hosts a Spring Party and Fall Party. Typically the spring party is an Oyster Roast and the fall party is a classic Low-Country Boil.
Annual Brew-Venture (Bus Trip)
Each year the club decides on a destination city and charters a bus to drive everyone around. This gives everyone a chance to either visit some old classics or new breweries.
Palmetto State Brewers Open
For the past 21 years our clubs sponsors the Annual Palmetto State Brewers Open homebrew competition! PSBO is an AHA/BJCP sanctioned competition and proud participant in the Southeastern Homebrewers Association. Entries will be accepted in all beer, mead, and cider categories based on BJCP 2015 guidelines.
The Palmetto brewing competition is also one of the six major competitions and final of the year that determine The Carolina Brewer of the Year.
Judging and award ceremony will be held on Dec 7th at CottonTown Brew Lab in downtown Columbia, SC. Our potluck breakfast and lunch are circuit renown for its amazing dishes! There will be lots of finger-licking BBQ and delicious home cooking from our club members.
Homeward Bound Pet Rescue was our charity for the 2019 PSBO.
All proceeds raised by our raffle will be donated to Homeward Bound.
