General Homebrew Discussion / Portland Homebrewers: Media Request
« on: May 10, 2017, 10:46:24 AM »
Hello Portland and Bangor, Maine Homebrewers,

A writer with a Maine daily newspaper is interested in doing a piece about homebrewing and the upcoming AHA rally at Shipyard Brewing.

The writer wants to speak with a couple homebrewers with especially interesting gear, brewing methods or novel approaches to homebrewing.

Do any of you have some interesting details you’d be willing to share with this writer? If so, please email Marty Jones at marty@martyjones.com, or Matt Bolling at matt@brewersassociation.org.

Thanks!

Homebrew Clubs / Club Connection e-newsletter has launched!
« on: January 12, 2017, 05:02:48 PM »
Hi all -

The AHA Clubs Subcommittee recently launched our new Clubs Connection e-newsletter. This will hit your club's registered e-mail address every 6-8 weeks with content focused on helping your club officer's grow membership and participation in your homebrew club. Each letter will also have suggested homebrewing topics for your next club's meeting.

This newsletter was launched in November, and the second edition was mailed earlier this week. If your club officer did not receive it, we urge you to update your club's contact information using the link below:

With the holiday season quickly approaching - the AHA wants to help elevate your Thanksgiving dinner or Christmas dinner... (or even your post-Halloween leftover candy binge) by teaching you about how to pair beer and food!

CraftBeer.com Director Julia Herz will join me in the next Zymurgy Live for an interactive conversation on the state of craft beer, why understanding the beer marketplace is critical in pairing, and how you can pair your beer to fit into your holiday meals. Come prepared with a sour beer & a pickle, as well as some blue cheese & an American IPA for a pairing exercise.

We'd like to answer your questions about anything from the craft beer industry to beer tasting and pairing. So submit your questions here ahead of time, and we'll answer them in the live webinar!

Tune in next Thursday, November 10 at 7pm ET, 6pm CT!

Thanks, all!

Hi All -

If you live in the Pittsburgh, PA area and received an email recently from the AHA announcing the addition of EJ Phair Brewing Co Taproom & Pizzeria as a new AHA Member Deal and you were a little bit confused... That's because EJ Phair Brewing Co is in Pittsburgh, CA. Obviously, I made a typo - and I apologize for any confusion.

However, we do have lots of great new member deals in the Pittsburgh, PA area! Check them all out here:

Hi all -

We had to do a re-recording of our first Zymurgy Live webinar from May 24. I apologize for the delayed posting, but our first webinar - Brewing Local With Stan Hieronymus - is now posted to the Zymurgy Live archives:

https://www.homebrewersassociation.org/archived-zymurgy-live/brewing-local-stan-hieronymus/

You can download just the powerpoint to view at your own pace, or you can follow the audio recording with the slides by following the appropriate links.

If you have not done so already, you will likely need to install a WebEx plug-in to your internet browser. This will be a one-time download and should take less than one minute (if that). You will not have to download it again to access other archived or live webinars.

Please let me know if you have any questions! Thanks!

Cheers,

General Homebrew Discussion / Attending your first homebrew club meeting
« on: January 28, 2016, 12:34:21 PM »
Howdy forumites-

I'm looking to source some feedback on the topic of attending club meetings for the first time, and any input you have is appreciated.

Other than the obvious 'bring beer' suggestion, what can wise advice can you guys give me?

Do you have any tips for someone that has never been to a club meeting, but is interested in going?
What was your first meeting experience like?
What advice can you offer someone who is attending a club meeting without knowing anyone there?

You can post here, or send me an email:

matt@brewersassociation.org

Thanks!
