Although we all benefit from the generous discounts offered by the businesses below (all of whom we consider part of our extended family of craft beer lovers and homebrewing advocates), at this time we are requesting that you forgo your discounts to help them in their time of need during the pandemic. If possible, please continue giving them your patronage. It is our hope to see them stay afloat well after the pandemic has subsided and we can cozy up to the bar side-by-side again.

As a paid Forest City Brewers Member (Pay Dues here) you can take advantage of these great money saving Membership Discounts – If you know of a local business or service interested in working with the club, please send us an CONTACT with details and we’ll reach out to them:
