The Southern Nevada Ale Fermenters Union

( SNAFU )

Sothern Nevada Ale Fermentors Union

Helping Southern Nevadans Brew Better Beer Since 1989

Hi!  You found us! As it says above, we are the Southern Nevada Ale Fermenters Union (SNAFU) – the largest homebrewing club in Southern Nevada.

Our mission is to help our members make better beer (Mead and Cider as well) and educate the public about homebrewing and craft beer. We hold meetings every second Friday of the month at Aces and Ales, 3740 S. Nellis Blvd., Las Vegas, NV (directions). Meetings start at around 7:30 PM.

Our meetings are very informal. After taking care of club business, we enjoy each other’s company and (of course) homebrew! Don’t worry if you don’t know anyone at the meeting; we’ll welcome you with a homebrew.  This is a great opportunity to get feedback on your beers since we have a number of BJCP judges who will be happy to give you honest feedback on your beer, and ways to improve it.  You can also learn as we all tell our own “Disasters in Homebrewing” stories (admit it, we all have them!).

Educational Opportunities:

We have educational opportunities at other times of the month at the SNAFU “Gauntlets” and other events. The Gauntlets are a chance to have your homebrew analyzed by BJCP judges without going through the trouble of entering a competition. It also gives aspiring judges a chance to challenge their senses and command of the English language through practice score sheets. Each month we’ll cover a different subject relevant to homebrewing that will hopefully enlighten a few members.
