Welcome to the TCHOPS site
The Tulare County Homebrewers Organization for Perfect Suds is a club for home beer, wine, and mead makers in the Tulare County area.
Our goal is to share our craft with each other, build an awareness of craft brewing in the area, and create an educational environment for beginner, novice and experienced homebrewers. We participate in a variety of events throughout the year.
Our meetings are usually scheduled at 1:00 p.m. on the third Sunday of each month. Meetings vary, but we frequently host meetings at Brewbakers in Visalia.
Our next meeting is on Sun Mar 16, 2014 @ 1:00 PM.
