If your name is not on this list, be sure to talk to the treasurer at the next club meeting to pay your 2014 dues.

You can also pay your Lincoln Lagers dues ONLINE via PayPal ( please send an email to iasanlee at to receive more details about how & where to send the payment ).


But I’ve never belonged to the club! How does a brand new member join???

Well, if you want to, you can use the PayPal, and make certain that you put LOTS OF INFORMATION into the checkout page so that we know who just paid us to join up!

Otherwise, the EASIEST way to join the club is to COME TO OUR NEXT MEETING.

Go back to the home page of the blog, and look at where and when we will be meeting next!

When you come to your first meeting, you can bring cash or a check for our esteemed Treasurer Terry Schwimmer to tender.

What do I get by joining?

First and most importantly, whether you pay dues and join the club or you just stop by to meet us and find out what we’re about, you get access to a community of home brewers, mead makers, wine makers, clever Do-it-Yourselfers and innovators. You can learn more about the in-depth science of brewing (We have multiple members who work full time in scientific professions!), or you can talk about recipe formulation, or equipment selection, repurposing, modification, automation, whatever it is that tickles your beer-related fancy!

But, let’s talk about some more tangible benefits for dues-paying members!

Each year we offer some sort of a member premium – in the past, it’s been mostly screen printed T-Shirts, but we’re looking at other possibilities – with the Lincoln Lagers Homebrew Club logo on them.

You also get discounted pricing for the annual Lincoln Lagers Bus Trip which is a roaring good time for all who attend.

You can get access to special events in Lincoln and the surrounding area — The Lincoln Lagers are active participants in many local events such as the Advertising Federation Winterfest and the extremely popular annual Nebraska State Stroke Association’s Okto Beerfest, where each year we donate and serve approximately 25 Gallons of homebrewed beer to attendees at the event! Get a chance to serve your hand-crafted beers to other Lincolnites.

You can enter your homebrew to compete! The Lagers participate in the ongoing AHA Club-Only Competition, and also frequently enter events in the Heartland such as: The Annual Nebraska Shoot-Out Cross-Club Competition, the River City Roundup, the KC Biermeisters Competition, and many more… not to mention OUR VERY OWN competition, The Sower’s Cup.

Finally, you get the satisfaction of supporting a local homebrew club, which in turn is proud to support and promote local beer-related businesses!
