Hello and Welcome Fellow Brewers, Mead and Cider Makers!!!
Welcome to the Dukes of Ale Homebrew Club, Albuquerque, New Mexico serving the local homebrewing community by sharing ideas on what and how to brew, and by holding competitions. In addition to info on this website, go to: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/NM_Brewers/join to be a part of the email list.
New Mexico Homebrewing Competition is now open to entries on Reggiebeer!
The 2017 New Mexico Homebrewing Competition (NMHC) is open to any homebrewer in the USA, replaces the ProAm competition, and due to several reasons, is only for amateur brewers, cider and meadmakers.
Registration window is August 18th through September 15th. Entries will be accepted through September 15th at the drop off locations listed in the Reggiebeer registration site. Bottle Check-In is September 16th, and we gratefully need help, if you’re willing (free lunch!!). Judging will take place Friday, September 22nd, 23rd, 24th, 29th, 30th, and October 1st (if needed). The awards presentation will be at 6:00 PM Sunday, October 1st.

Excellent Set of Officers Leads the Way to a Stellar 2017 Season!
The Dukes elections provided a solid set of officers/volunteer list, no doubt! So we have: Jeff Jantz- President, Shannon Dyke and Scott Carpenter- VPs, Tim Lambert- Treasurer, Ryan Sarhan- Web Manager, Carolyn Parsey- Facebook Manager, and I’ll do some of the events planning/coordination but we could use another Events Director, to lighten the load. We’ve created a Competition Committee w/o a Competition Director, to lessen the burden on one person. If you want to join, we’d love to have you help! Current members are Jeff Jantz, Scott Carpenter, Kevin Fleming, Shannon Dyke, Marty and Tad Ashlock, and several others not “officially” on the list. I’m being honest in saying for 2017 we have one of the strongest set of officers in the history of the club! Here’s just a few events we’re planning: -“From Wort to Beer, to Spirits” Club beer recipe design to distillation at Broken Trails Distillery. -Explora, “Teaching Brewing Science”. -Mead & Cider Competition with Seminars (April). -Brewery Bicycle Tour. -Belgian & Trappist Ales Seminar, given by Berkeley (From Abbey Brewing), AND MUCH MORE TO COME
UPDATE! September 7th Meeting @ Rio Bravo
The whiskey reveal has been postponed until December (after all, it is time that will produce a good whiskey!). The September meeting will take place at Rio Brave, instead. Topic will be announced soon, stay tuned!
UPDATE! December 7th Meeting: Whiskey Reveal at Broken Trail
