Welcome to the Official Tri-County Fermenters Club Website.
Our Mission: To bring like-minded homebrewers, home wine vintners, and home mead/cider makers from the borderline counties of Northeast Wisconsin and Upper Michigan together in the pursuit and enjoyment of all things fermented.
We typically meet at members homes in the Beecher/Florence/Iron Mountain region monthly to socialize and enjoy the fruits of our labor.

Our #1 goal is to educate you to promote greater knowledge and appreciation of fermented beverages.
TCF promotes responsible drinking encourages the use of a designated driver. Please stay safe so that you can live to ferment another day!

Fall N' Down Fermentation Festival POSTPONED

The Tri-County Fermenters will be postponing the 2011 Fall N' Down Fermentation Festival due to recent changes in how the Wisconsin Dept of Revenue interprets statutes related in home fermenting. We are hopeful that we can bring this event back in 2012. Thanks to all who have previously participated in this event.
