The Hamilton Ontario Zymurgy Enthusiast Ring (HOZER) is a rapidly growing group of homebrewers in the Hamilton area, dedicated to refining our craft and sharing out knowledge. Our membership includes all skill levels, from novice brewers through to professional brewers with many years experience who also brew at home.

The HOZER meets irregularly to allow members to produce, share, analyze and critique various homebrewed libations of all styles, and some that belong to no recognized style at all. Some members of the group are training their collective palates and vocabulary to meet Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP) standards, while others are self-styled 'beer geeks', and still others simply make great beer to share with friends and neighbours.
