Homebrewers spread the word

3rd annual 'Teach a Friend to Homebrew Day' Nov. 3

Oct 4, 2001 - The American Homebrewers Association (AHA) has set Nov. 3 for its third annual Teach a Friend to Homebrew Day. The goal is to introduce people to the hobby of homebrewing and help them establish relationships with local homebrew supply shops.


As part of Teach a Friend to Homebrew Day, homebrewers contact interested friends who have not brewed before, accompany them to local homebrew supply shops, help select ingredients, and then help them brew an inaugural batch of beer.

"Teaching a friend to homebrew is the best service a homebrewer can do for the hobby," states Paul Gatza, director of the AHA. "When a current brewer brings new brewers into the hobby, the entire beer community improves. The local shop receives more business and can provide fresher ingredients and better equipment selection. The local homebrew club has more potential members. And the brewing community receives more experienced, knowledgeable beer enthusiasts who can spread the word and point others toward better beer."
