November 4 is the 19th Annual ‘Learn to Homebrew Day’
—Celebrated by Beginner, Hobbyist and Professional Brewers All Over The World—
Boulder, CO • October 17, 2017 – On November 4, the American Homebrewers Association (AHA) celebrates the 19th annual Learn to Homebrew Day, an opportunity for homebrewers to draft their non-brewer friends and family to learn how to make beer at home. Hundreds of fun, educational events are held at homes, breweries, shops and clubs worldwide. Over 300 local celebrations and more than 4,000 participants are expected for this year’s celebration both in the U.S. and abroad.
“AHA Learn to Homebrew Day brings together thousands of people from all over the world, and we encourage anyone who enjoys beer—from brewing beginners and hobbyists, to professionals, to those who might be curious about homebrewing and interested in trying something new—to get involved,” said Gary Glass, director, American Homebrewers Association. “It’s exciting to see the continued growth in popularity of the hobby, which, for beginners, is really easy to get started.”
The AHA offers a variety of resources to help people of all skill levels begin brewing. Among them is Brew Guru™, a free mobile app which delivers money-saving deals on beer, food and homebrew supplies, plus the finest homebrew recipes on the planet. Membership is not required to use the app.
Additional beginner-friendly resources from the AHA include:
- Let’s Brew: Access tips and tutorials on making better beer and tasty recipes.
- AHA Forum: Ask and answer questions on homebrewing with the AHA community.
- How to Brew by John Palmer: Learn from the definitive guide to making quality beers at home.
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. To be part of the celebration, find an event nearby or register your own.
