AHA Learn to Homebrew Day and Club Brew day at North Texas Homebrew Supply – Nov 5th, 2022, 9am-4pm

The first Saturday in November is the American Homebrewers Association Learn to Homebrew Day. This day was established in 1999 to promote the hobby of homebrewing.

This year, North Texas Homebrew Supply will be hosting the November club brew day in association with the AHA event. In the spirit of learning, the goal is to have several different types of brew rigs and brew methods setup, (BIAB, Electric All-In-One, 3 vessel system etc, extract , partial mash, and all grain) to show new brewers the variety of equipment and methods available to brew beer.

If you would like to brew at the event, contact Owner Eric Morgan at [email protected] . Include what type of brew system you will be bringing. More info to follow.
