Title: Thank You AHA community
Post by: etbrew on February 12, 2014, 12:31:49 AM
I just started reading Gordon Strong's Brewing Better Beer and he talks a lot about learning from other brewers and it occured to me that I don't really know any other brewers except all of you on this forum.  I have never met any of you but the immense body of knowledge and experience in the AHA and this forum have been instrumental in furthering my understanding of the brewing pocess.

I have not asked many questions on the forum over the years but I have read a lot.  It turns out most of the question I have had were answered somewhere in time on this forum and all I had to do was seach for it!   

With that said I'd like to send out a big thank you to the AHA community for helping to teach me how to brew better beer  ;D

Cheers!

You are welcome. We all started with our first batch. We all learned from others along the way. We are glad to help.

+1.  My thoughts exactly. It's a great community of brewers and knowledge. While I feel competent to be a help to some, I learn constantly as well. How it should be.

I as well must say the knowledge from you guys and gals here are outstanding in the advise you share. I as well read a lot of the posts and have my questions answered. I also extend a Thank You to everyone here and hope for many more years of this may i dare say tradition. The passing of knowledge from one generation to the next with hopes that it lasts forever thanks to all the Elders of now and tomorrow.

Maybe this year we can arrange a more formal AHA Forum meetup at NHC and put faces to names.

I did meet many last year, and we went to Nodding Head for a beer or three. Should do it again,

+1 to what the OP said! The folks here have been more than happy to help me with good solid advice and guidance. I've looked around for other online resources but this forum is the best. As others have said the "noise" here is far less than on other boards. Welcome!

Thanks to everyone for all the help.  Hopefully I've returned the favor a time or two.

This is a community that lives the concept of "pay it forward".  I received help so I can give others help now.  You all do the same in spades!

Due to work/family/life-in-general constraints, I don't belong to a homebrew club. But honestly, the forums here suit my needs just fine. It's a great community we have going here, and I'm thankful if I can give back even a fraction of what I've learned (and continue to learn on a daily basis) from everyone here.

Will there be an option to skype into the meetup for those of us who can't make it to the NHC?

I think it would be fun if our avatars were printed on our name badges.
I may have to full on dork out and make a t-shirt.

If I get to "Official Poobah of No Life" by then, that's going on a T-shirt.

This would be awesome! I'm looking forward to attending my first NHC and would love to put faces to names.

Be careful what you ask for...it could ruin the mystery  ;D

But then you get to say you have met some of the heroes of homebrewing, like Denny and Drew. A lot of the forumites don't look like the people you would expect.

I won't be there this year, the new house is taking all of my time and most of my money. But my wife and I both plan to attend next year in San Diego!

People are always much less impressed with me after they've met me!

Sorry you won't be there this year, man.

Too bad you will miss GR. SD was a lot of fun last time, see you there next year.

The AHA Forum is one of the best beer forums on the web! A great group of beer advocates, beer lovers and beer geeks all collaborating for the betterment of brewkind. Your welcome and stick around for more of where that came from.

Oh...and another forum meetup sounds awesome...but probably NOT at Nodding Head this year.  ;)
