Northern California Homebrewers Festival

September 15 @ 4:00 pm - September 16 @ 11:30 pm

Once a year at the time of the Autumnal Equinox, homebrewers from all over Northern California make the trek to the little town of Dobbins and call Lake Francis their home for two days. Here they proudly fly the colors of their homebrew clubs and eagerly share well-crafted homebrew, rivaling some of the best known craft breweries.

If you haven’t attended NCHF before, this is a homebrew club-only event. If your club is interested in participating and hasn’t before, send us an email. Generally your club must be recognized by the American Homebrewers Association as a legitimate, registered club.

The NCHF features live music, a raffle with fantastic prizes, nationally known speakers, a club-only homebrew competition, a premier Brewers Dinner and much more! Great homebrew, gourmet food, camping under the stars with good friends; a fantastic weekend for any avid homebrewer.

The theme for 2023 is Feelin’ Groovy! Check out the Club-only Competition page for ideas about beer styles! The festival is always the third weekend of September. The dates for NCHF 24 are September 15-16, 2023.
