Happy homebrewers

Hobby adds record number of new brewers on Teach a Friend to Homebrewer Day

Nov 21, 2002 - Teach a Friend to Homebrew Day 2002 set records for participation on all levels. More than 1,000 homebrewers participated at 124 sites and the American Homebrewers Association estimates than 450 new homebrewers were introduced to the hobby.


"The dramatic increase in the number of participants in Teach a Friend to Homebrew Day clearly demonstrates the enthusiasm and dedication today's homebrewers have for their hobby," said Gary Glass, the event's coordinator for the AHA. "It is inspiring to know that homebrewers around the world are willing to take the time to educate their friends and families about the joys of homebrewing."

Teach a Friend to Homebrew Day is an international effort to introduce people to the homebrewing hobby and establish relationships with local homebrew supply shops. Each year on the first Saturday in November homebrewers around the world are encouraged to invite friends over and introduce them to the hobby by having them help brew a 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."
