Welcome to the official website of the Zoo City Zymurgists! We are a non-profit organization made up of an eclectic group of people dedicated to craft, culture, enjoyment, and responsible use of all fermented beverages in Missoula and the Bitterroot Valley. Zoo City Zymurgists formed in 1987 making us one of the older homebrew clubs in the U.S.! While we tend to be beer-focused, you will find club members with a great deal of knowledge on mead, cider, wine, and other fermented creations.
Want to learn more? Consider attending one of our monthly meetings. We meet on the third Thursday of every month from 6-8 at a local brewery. Meetings are free and open to anyone interested in learning about the club. Check out our Club Events page or follow us on Facebook to find out where we are meeting next. Other club activities include brew days, beer sensory classes, homebrew competitions, collaborations with local breweries, brewery tours, brewfest beer judging, and weekend gatherings to enjoy everyone’s latest creation.
