Special Events

Western Carolina Homebrew Festival (WCHF)

UPZS has signed up to participate in the 2023 Western Carolinas Homebrewers Festival, in Lincolnton, NC. The club will have a club booth where we can share our homebrews on tap. There will be live music, food trucks, vendors and presentations from White Labs and also the head brewer from Sierra Nevada. In addition, overnight RV and tent camping is available Friday – Sunday (April 28th – April 30th). Some of us already plan to stay both nights!

Since the club is a participant, your fee is only $5.00 (originally $35.00)!


Bus trip to Asheville, NC – Brewery Trip

UPZS is planning a member bus trip to Asheville, NC. Part of the cost of this trip is being mitigated by the raffle of a 7 gallon SS Brewtech Chronical fermenter. The details of the trip will be shared in an upcoming communication once the planning is finalized. The raffle date for the fermenter will be shared as soon as it’s determined.

If you would like to purchase $5.00 raffle tickets, please reach out to any of the Officers

Below is an EXAMPLE picture of the product (the feet differ on the actual fermenter)


Pint Nights

Pint nights are a way for members to get together outside of a regular meeting at a local brewery. Each paid member receives one ticket for a beer of their choosing. The schedule for these will be released early in the year, but attending three of these pays for your membership!

Pint Day: Lake Wylie Brewing – March 4th – 2:00pm – 5:00pm – Trivia with prizes!!!
