Welcome Brewers!

The Wort Hogs will brew anywhere, but we meet in the northern Virginia suburbs of Reston and Herndon, Virginia, just outside of Washington, DC. We meet on the second Wednesday of each month at 7:30pm, at the Herndon Mellow Mushroom.

Our Mission: Advancing the art, science, evaluation and enjoyment of home produced beer and the responsible consumption thereof. We aim to give our members and guests a deeper appreciation of the making and enjoyment of truly exceptional homebrewed beer, mead, and wine.

For membership, directions, suggestions, corrections, praise, complaints & all manner of communication, e-mail us at: worthogsofficers@gmail.com. Limit length of complaints to one sentence; no limit for other topics.
