ABOUT DOH

Started in 2012 by a group of likeminded homebrewers, this small club has grown to over 50 members in 6 years and has become one of the most popular clubs in the area. With award winning beers having been produced at many Virginia breweries including Front Royal Brewing Company, Castleburg Brewery and Taproom and Portner Brewhouse, our members have been pushing the limits of homebrew since the clubs creation.

Even in success, the club has stayed true to it's roots of camaraderie. With a mix of brewers both new to the hobby and those who have been brewing for 20 years, Downright Obsessed Homebrewers is both approachable and enjoyable for any level brewer.

Meet our Officers

Our officers are responsible for putting together our meetings, events, competitions and everything else we do as a group. Meet the fine folks who volunteer their time to make it all happen.
