Saturday, November 3, 2012 is the American Homebrewers Association’s (AHA) 14th Annual Learn to Homebrew Day and Sograte BBQ and Brew is participating in this year’s celebration.
Learn to Homebrew Day (formerly known as Teach a Friend to Homebrew Day) was established by the American Homebrewers Association (AHA) in 1999 to enable people interested in beer and homebrewing to learn how to brew. Learn to Homebrew Day occurs annually on the first Saturday in November, when homebrewers around the world are encouraged to learn how to brew or teach someone how to brew.
"One of the great things about homebrewers is they are happy to share their knowledge and to pass on the joy that they find in homebrewing to others,” states Gary Glass, director of the AHA, “that's really what Learn To Homebrew Day is all about."
Homebrewing is a hobby that is increasing in popularity and something that almost anyone 21 years and older can enjoy. Homebrewing is a rewarding but easy hobby — anyone who has a kitchen can do it. The equipment and ingredients needed are less expensive than most people think.
Ale-ien Society Club members and experienced homebrewers are encouraged to bring friends that are interested in learning to brew so they can see for themselves how easy it is to brew your own beer.
Our hosted demonstration will start at 11:00am with the demonstration brew finishing at approximately 1:00pm. Experienced brewers are encouraged to bring their equipment and brew on-site with us with set-up anytime after 12:00 noon and brew through-out the day.
New brewers will receive 10% off their starter kits when purchased on Learn to Homebrew Day. Other brewers that join will receive 10% off ingredients for the brew day.
