From Our President
Summer is here and there's lots going on in the next few months. The FOAM pool party's on July 11th at Dave & Mary Coleman's place in Middletown. Bring your homebrew and a side dish. This is a family friendly event, kids are welcome. Remember no GLASS near the pool! We will also hold the 2nd annual blended beer contest at the pool party. Look for details to be emailed soon.

FOAM's night at the Keys is Tuesday July 21st. This year everyone pays their own way in, but when you find Dave Coleman and show your membership card he will buy you a beer. Just look for the guy on the first base side wearing the cowboy hat!

We hope to hold the August meeting at Mad Science Brewing.

MASHout will be August 20-23 at Organarchy Hops in Oldtown, MD. Check out: for details.

One last thing, the Frederick Fair will be here before you know it. This year ALL bjcp styles will be accepted! Looking forward for a lot of FOAMers to bring their best brews!

The Club
Frederick's Original Ale Makers is a homebrew club targeted to those who are interested in sharing ideas and techniques in the quest to brew the ultimate beer.  Brewing your own beer is not necessary but is strongly encouraged.

Meetings consist of information sharing, as well as sharing your homebrew, to get opinions and tips on how to continually grow and make your beer better.  Many of our meetings include guests from breweries from both far and near.  Several of our meetings have been held at local breweries where tours are held.

If you are interested in joining the club, please contact our Membership Coordinator, Marion Kozar & Ben Fegley, or download, fill in and mail the FOAM Membership Application.  The cost of membership is $25.00 a year.  This fee offsets the cost of having guests from other breweries, as well as the cost of the special events, parties and picnics that we hold throughout the year.
