Boulder, CO ● October 31, 2016 – Celebrating the thriving community and culture of homebrewing, the American Homebrewers Association (AHA)—the leading community for homebrewers—unveiled a list of cities across the U.S. where homebrewing is on the rise.

By examining a number of factors including economic impact, proximity to craft breweries, homebrew clubs and membership, competition entries and more, the AHA identified budding areas for the fervor and fellowship of brewing at home.

“Craft brewing and homebrewing have long supported one another: a thriving craft beer community nurtures a healthy, growing homebrew culture, and vice-versa,” said Gary Glass, director, American Homebrewers Association. “Some cities are legendary for such pro-am symbiosis, while others are gaining well-deserved reputations as up-and-coming homebrew hot spots.”

The AHA List of Up-and-Coming Homebrew Hot Spots includes:

· Boise, Idaho

· Minneapolis/Saint Paul, Minnesota

· Nashville, Tennessee

· Phoenix, Arizona

· Rochester, New York

· Tampa, Florida

· Windsor, California

With an estimated economic impact of $1.225 billion, homebrewing is booming in America. A recent survey found that over three-quarters (78%) of homebrewers are more enthusiastic about brewing than they were three years ago.

“No matter where you live, we encourage everyone to try their hand at homebrewing,” added Glass.
