About Us

The inaugural meeting of the Dead Yeast Society held in Lafayette, Louisiana at the home of Brent Mills, June 8th, 1990.

The Dead Yeast Society is Acadiana’s Home Brew Club. We are a 501(c) non-profit educational group dedicated to teaching others about home brewing processes, ingredients, equipment, taste sampling, critiquing and judging. We strive to show you how to make better beer, and more interesting beer, than you can find on store shelves.

As a guest, you can read over our By-Laws, our Meeting Minutes, and in the future, check out some of our educational videos, tutorials, and Q&A’s on brewing.

As a paid member (only $25 per year for individuals, $35 for families) you get access to your club lending library which includes brewing magazines, books, and equipment; a special Dead Yeast Society social network with updates on who’s brewing, personal brew day calendars, and members-only brewing forums; and you get to participate in club brewing events including festivals and competitions.

Official club meetings are on the first Tuesday of every month at Marcello’s Wine Market. We also participate in many festivals and home brew competitions throughout the year, and even have a few brew related social outings. Check out our Events Calendar for the latest.
