MHBA Club Library

The MHBA Education Circle is happy to announce the rebirth of the club library. Education is key to becoming a better brewer, consumer, and judge and we hope you will take advantage of this benefit of your Club membership.

To check out a book, please fill out this form and select whether you would like us to mail it to you (at the Club’s expense) or want to pick it up at the next Club activity (saves the club money on postage).

Books can be returned by bringing them to any Club activity or mailing them back to us. The return address will be provided when you check an item out.

You must be a member of the MHBA to make use of the Club Library. Books are available for one month. All items should be returned in a condition similar to how you received it.
