Club's History

In 2005 a group of about 12 homebrewers got together at Homebrew USA Norfolk and wrote a charter. They formed the Beer and Ale Research Foundation homebrew club. The entire ideal for BARF was to be a club focused on the technical side of brewing, to share experiences and improve our homebrewing skills. It was a contrasted with other local clubs at the time that focused primarily on drinking/tasting. In 2013 the club changed it's name to Seven City Brewers to recognize that we include members from all the 7 cities  of Hampton Roads Virginia. To this day the vision of  that initial charter still exists. We never want to forget the homebrewers that came before us.
