Homebrew Supply Shop Survey
Our annual survey of home beer and wine retailers is used to provide both retailers and the AHA with a better understanding of current trends in the ever-growing homebrew industry. Contact the AHA for a copy of the most recent results.
Homebrew shops have complimentary access to recordings of past Homebrew Con industry presentations recordings.
This area of the AHA Forum was created to provide a platform for communication, collaboration and sharing of information within the homebrew industry. Access is limited to industry professionals, and both posting and viewing this forum’s posts are available exclusively to approved participants. Regular users of the AHA Forum are not able to view or post.
For more information on Industry Subcommittee activities, including accessing survey results and the Industry Forum, please contact us.
Media Contact List Requests
Have an event or class coming up? AHA Member Shops may request state beer media contacts lists once a year to assist in promoting your business endeavors.
Diversity Best Practices
Cultivating diversity isn’t merely a feel-good effort; it is an increasingly important key to success in the beer community. The diversity best practices resources you can request below provide expert guidance to those businesses who wish to invest in diversity and inclusion, but may not know where to start.
These diversity best practices were put together by Dr. J. Nikol Jackson-Beckham, the diversity ambassador for the Brewers Association. This five-part series dedicated to introducing best practices not only starts the conversation about why diversity matters, but also focuses on what it means to assess the success of your own diversity program.
