The Central Arkansas Fermenters (CAF) is a home brew club located in Little Rock, Arkansas. We are one of the largest home brew clubs in the United States with over 90 current members. 


 The mission of CAF is to provide education and enhance the awareness and understanding of the art, science, and craft underlying the at-home brewing of beer, ciders, wines, and other fermented beverages throughout the Central Arkansas region, and to use that craft to benefit other charitable organizations in the area. 


 The goals of CAF: To provide educational activities that share information on brewing and fermenting techniques, based upon both professional and scientific knowledge as well as shared knowledge and experience - To make charitable contributions to local advocacy and service agencies whenever feasible, through events, competitions, and in-kind donations - To promote the hobby of at-home brewing of beer, ciders, wines, and other fermented beverages - To promote the responsible consumption of alcoholic beverages.


The Central Arkansas Fermenters were established in 2003 as a group of people who enjoy the hobby of making beer and wine at home. The focus of the club is education about fermented beverages with a fun and responsible approach.
