Dan Howe won 2021 Zymurgist of the Year (ZOTY) with 23 brews, and a couple of seltzers. His focus was primarily on mastering his wheat beer recipes as he’s preparing to open Wheat Heads Brewing company soon! He also hosted our own mini “Beerstock” this year, which was a great success. Congratulations Dan!

We took suggestions for style of the month and styles for the MEGABREWS of 2022, which will be announced soon.

Please reach out to publicist@mcza.org with any questions or comments! Cheers!

Keep Brewing!

MCZA meetings and events will be postponed until further notice. However, homebrew supply shops and websites are still running, so with little else available for recreation, why not brew more beer?

Notifications will be sent out to fellow Zymurgists when we can reconvene.

All the best,

Riley Zionce

MCZA President
