Teach a Friend to Homebrew Day delayed

AHA-HWBTA event postponed until Nov. 13

Sept 16, 1999 - The date of "Teach a Friend to Homebrew Day" has been changed from Sept. 18 to Nov. 13. The change was made to take advantage of the holiday brewing season. "For many brewers, mid-November kicks off the holiday brewing season," said Paul Gatza, director of the American Homebrewers Association (AHA). "We feel that 'Teach a Friend to Homebrew Day' will experience greater success if scheduled for November."


The AHA is teaming up with the Home Wine and Beer Trade Association (HWBTA) to present "Teach a Friend to Homebrew Day." The day is an effort to introduce as many new people to the hobby of homebrewing as possible and help them establish relationships with their local homebrew supply shop. The AHA and the HWBTA want homebrewers to find an interested friend who has not brewed before, take them to a local homebrew supply shop, help them select ingredients, and then brew a batch of beer together Nov. 13.

"We're excited about the event and the possibilities that it brings for encouraging homebrewing in each of our communities," states Judi Rudd, president of the HWBTA. "By changing the date to November, we'll be able to reach more customers and will be able to promote the day through the brewing newspapers and among our wholesalers and retailers."
