Welcome to the Puget Sound Amateur Wine and Beermakers Club

The objectives of the Puget Sound Amateur Wine and Beer makers Club are to foster a general interest in wines and beers and to give club members a means of exchanging information on wine making and beer making methods, materials and equipment. Meetings are held monthly on the first Friday evening. Meetings start off with a social period where members share their wine and beer in conversation followed by a great potluck and then there is a short business meeting, technical seminar/discussion, or a guest speaker. We end the meeting with a raffle of items brought and donated by members. There are about 100 club members and a typical monthly meeting has 30-50 attendees.

Our General Club Meetings are held the 1st Friday of each month at the Federal Way Senior Center, 4016 So. 352nd Street, Auburn, WA 98001 (except July). Our General Meeting is a potluck where each member or couple brings an appetizer, a main dish, side dish, casserole, salad, or dessert to share. Members also bring their own table setting of plates, flatware and wine glasses. There are some special themes during the year for special table decorations and main dishes, such as, Veteran’s Day, Christmas, Valentines, St Patrick’s Day, Cinco de Mayo.

The next General Meeting is Friday, December 7th, 2018 starting at 6:30pm at the Federal Way Senior Center.  This will be our annual holiday party and potluck.  There will be a voluntary gift exchange. If you want to participate please bring a gift under $20 – we typically do wine and beer themed gifts!
