Boulder, CO • October 17, 2016 On November 5, the American Homebrewers Association (AHA) celebrates the 18th 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 are expected for this year’s celebration both in the U.S. and abroad.

“It’s never been a better time to be a homebrewer. And for anyone who loves beer and has never tried homebrewing before, it’s really easy to get started,” said Gary Glass, director, American Homebrewers Association. “We’re excited to see thousands of people around the world participating in AHA Learn to Homebrew Day, taking part in the most gratifying, delicious activity of all time.”

Homebrewing had an estimated economic impact of $1.225 billion and created 11,672 jobs in the U.S. in 2015. An AHA survey from the same year found that 41 percent of regular craft beer drinkers who don’t already homebrew express a strong interest in taking up homebrewing. Now’s the time 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 new free mobile app. Dubbed the “Pokémon GO for catching great beer deals,” the app delivers brewing knowledge, money-saving deals and local info on breweries, bars and homebrew supply shops. Membership is not required to use the app.

Additional beginner-friendly resources from the AHA include:

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.
