We started as a small group of home brewers that held a contest every year. We decided to get organized, but we did not want our new group to be just about brewing. We put an ad in the local paper for a "Beer Club Organizational Meeting.". These twenty five showed up.
We wrote a constitution and a "Beer of Rights." We liked the name of the Zythological Society, but what region? We were mostly from Brenham, but there were people from other towns as well. Brenham, no. Brazos Valley, no. Let's do Texas...and someone said , "Let's go big!" So the Zythological Society of North America was born.
