23rd Annual Learn to Homebrew Day to be Celebrated November 6th
Craft beer enthusiasts looking to take their passion for beer to the next level and veteran homebrewers alike will be celebrating Learn to Homebrew Day this Saturday, November 6. The American Homebrewers Association will be hosting virtual and in-person events nationwide. Aspiring brewers will have two official recipes to pick from: Lucky 13 Dark Mild from Brew’d Up podcast host Laurie Ann Gutierrez, or Fuil Croi Irish Red Ale from the John Palmer’s classic book How To Brew.
Participants will need a few common kitchen items as well as some ingredients from homebrew supply shops or online retailers. Austin residents have two local homebrew stores to choose from: North Austin’s Austin Homebrew Supply and SoCo Homebrew in South Austin. Both homebrew stores are partners of the American Homebrewers Association.
The AHA, which is part of the Brewers Association, has existed since 1978 and has 40,000 members worldwide. The Association also publishes Zymurgy magazine and hosts events and competitions. AHA members receive discounts on books from Brewers Publications and stores like Austin Homebrew Supply and SoCo Homebrew. Members also have access to a vast library of recipes, videos, and homebrewing expertise. AHA also offer social opportunities through their Homebrew Club Locator and the AHA Forums.
