The Club
Frederick's Original Ale Makers is a homebrew club targeted to those who are interested in sharing ideas and techniques in the quest to brew the ultimate beer.  Brewing your own beer is not necessary but is strongly encouraged.

Meetings consist of information sharing, as well as sharing your homebrew, to get opinions and tips on how to continually grow and make your beer better.  Many of our meetings include guests from breweries from both far and near.  Several of our meetings have been held at local breweries where tours are held.

If you are interested in joining the club, please contact our Membership Coordinator Richard Fawley, or download, fill in and mail the FOAM Membership Application.  The cost of membership is $25.00 a year.  This fee offsets the cost of having guests from other breweries, as well as the cost of the special events, parties and picnics that we hold throughout the year.
