The 20th annual “Learn to Homebrew Day” takes place this weekend on Sun. November 3. The American Homebrewers Association, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, celebrates homebrewing with educational events worldwide. According to their website, more than 300 local events and more than 4,000 participants are expected for this year’s celebration.
“In 1999, Learn to Homebrew Day was established to promote the most rewarding and delicious activity of all time—homebrewing. And there’s never been a better time to give it a try,” Gary Glass, Director of AHA, said. “Each year, it’s gratifying to see so many beginners, hobbyists and professionals coming together. What’s also gratifying? Tasting your very own brew.”
Reach out to your local homebrew club or homebrew shop to find out how to homebrew. To access tutorials and recipes, visit HomebrewersAssocation.org.
