AMERICAN HOMEBREWERS ASSOCIATION® CELEBRATES ANNUAL ‘LEARN TO HOMEBREW DAY’
AMATEUR AND PROFESSIONAL BREWERS ALIKE RAISE A PINT TO THE ART OF BREWING BEER Homebrewers of all skill levels will unite in celebration around the art of brewing beer in November as the American Homebrewers Association® (AHA) hosts its 21st annual Learn to Homebrew Day. This marks an effort by the homebrewing community to spark interest in non-brewers in learning how to make beer at home. Hundreds of events are held at homes, breweries, shops and clubs worldwide. The AHA anticipates over 200 local celebrations and more than 3,000 participants to take part in this year’s celebration. “Learn to Homebrew Day is a great opportunity for those who are new to homebrewing to get involved with the community and learn what makes homebrewing so exciting,” said Gary Glass, director, American Homebrewers Association. “Each year we recognize this creative and rewarding hobby by celebrating with beginners who are eager to brew their first batch to professionals who have been brewing for decades.” Interested homebrewers will find a wealth of resources available through the AHA, including: • Brew Guru®, a free mobile app which delivers money-saving deals on beer, food and homebrew supplies and recipes. • Simple Homebrewing by Drew Beechum and Denny Conn: A guide to homebrewing made accessible and enjoyable through fun and expert tips and tricks. • Learn to Homebrew: Tutorials, tips and recipes for brewing great beer at home. • AHA Forum: Engage with the AHA community on a variety of homebrewing topics. “In addition to the resources available through the AHA, becoming a member provides many benefits beyond homebrewing,” added Glass. “Members have access to more than 2,300 exclusive discounts, access to member-only events and a subscription to Zymurgy® Magazine, among many other perks.” Started in 1999 by the AHA, Learn to Homebrew Day began as a way to promote homebrewing education in the U.S. Since then, it has become a worldwide celebration.
