Welcome to the SVHG

Shenandoah Valley Homebrewers Guild (SVHG) was founded in the spring of 2012 to promote the advancement of homebrewing, beer education, & beer appreciation. Our monthly meetings, held at Valley Homebrew on the third Friday of every month, include education & instruction, cooperative brewing, competitions, & beer tastings. We celebrate our brewing successes, commiserate over our brewing problems, but, most importantly, come together in a relaxed & friendly environment to encourage the responsibility of drinking & brewing beer.
