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 on “even” months (Feb, April, etc) on the first Friday evening. We have other activities during most “odd” months. 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, and/or a guest speaker. We end the meeting with a raffle of items brought and donated by members. There are about 50 club members and a typical monthly meeting has 30 attendees.

Our General Club Meetings are held the 1st Friday of each even month (Feb, April, etc) at the Federal Way Senior Center, 4016 So. 352nd Street, Auburn, WA 98001 (except July). During the other/odd months we typically have events at other facilities or members’ homes. You can email us at PSAWBC@yahoo.com or watch here for details.

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. 

Our May meeting will be at Leann & Michael Stacey’s house 10418 13th St Ct E, Edgewood.  Kris will be bringing her plant starts. We are having this a week later than normal to let the plants stay in the solarium a little longer.  It will be on Friday May 10th. 

In addition to monthly meetings, club members may choose to participate in many events and benefits of membership:
– Annual summer picnic in July
