Fun, Educational Homebrewing Events on Tap Around the World
Boulder, CO • October 14, 2014 – On November 1, the American Homebrewers Association (AHA) celebrates the 16th annual Learn to Homebrew Day. The day provides an opportunity for homebrewers to draft their non-brewer friends and family to learn one of the most rewarding and emergent hobbies: homebrewing.
Through beer making, demonstrations, tastings and other educational efforts, participating in Learn to Homebrew Day is as easy as finding a local event on the AHA website. Individuals can also organize their own event, register it online, invite friends and brew at home. This year, over 300 events are expected to take place at homes, homebrew shops, breweries and club gatherings both in the U.S. and abroad.
“Homebrewing is at the very heart of the craft beer revolution,” said Gary Glass, director, American Homebrewers Association. “Learn to Homebrew Day encourages people everywhere to be a part of the ever-growing movement and become familiar with the brewing process—the basics of which are much simpler than many think.”
The AHA offers a variety of tools to help people of all skill levels begin brewing:
- Let’s Brew: Replete with brewing tutorials, tips on making better beer and tasty recipes.
- Zymurgy: An Introduction to Homebrewing: Request copies of the AHA’s guide for the new brewer, or access it online.
- Homebrewopedia: A wiki-style website containing an extensive library of recipes, a glossary of brewing terms, homebrew club resources and much more.
“This hobby is as gratifying as it is delicious,” added Glass. “The AHA offers knowledge, resources and a community that make it easy for anyone, anywhere to get involved.”
Learn to Homebrew Day was started in 1999 by the AHA to promote homebrewing education in America. The event has now expanded globally, with people participating and hosting their own events around the world.
