Shed Beer

Shed Brewers meet every three months covering membership in Suffolk and Essex.

The term "Shed Beer" was coined after a blind tasting session to choose between commercial beer and our own brew. Rather than call it homebrew which seemed to imply beer made from kits, "Shed Beer" was used to indicate micro brewing, probably made in a garage, outbuilding or a shed.

Cambridge
