Events / Re: AHA Forum Meetup at NHC
« on: April 19, 2016, 10:37:43 AM »
Hi everyone!

We're planning to schedule the Forum Meet & Greet inside the Social Club this year.

We were really happy with the success of last year's meet & greet, and we heard your comments about food & beer. With the meet & greet being in the Social Club, everyone will have access to beer, as well as the ability to purchase food in the Expo Hall.

I hope this helps. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone in Baltimore in a few weeks!

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!

Wow, I didn't even know you existed and had that power, so you must be someone important. Do you have a boss who can take the whole forum down? ;)

Yes he does.  So don't piss him off otherwise he'll shutdown the forum and bring TechTalk back  :o

I did read the first post that came through and I think Matt made the right decision.

Yes, we do have a boss that can bring the whole forum down.

He is the leader and most powerful of the turtle-like Koopa race; whose ultimate goal is to kidnap and marry Princess Peach, defeat Mario, and conquer the fictional Mushroom Kingdom.

Hi all -

I took the thread down.

To my knowledge, there aren't many threads that have been removed from the AHA forum before. Those who saw how baseless and harassing some of the comments were will no doubt agree that it had no place here.

To quell anyone's curiosity - a thread was started about revealing personal information without the consent of the individual. The person who began the thread was an active member here and will be missed. He was not banned. According to his posts, he voluntarily suspended his account.

The individual who WAS banned joined this forum simply as a means to make baseless claims against the aforementioned member. His one and only post went so far as to reveal this person's home address, what model & color car he drives, as well as information about his family - along with several derogatory remarks. The post was quickly removed by the admins. After he was banned, he then called the AHA office to make further derogatory remarks about this individual.

I made the decision to pull the entire thread. I hope that I will not have to do that again, and I hope this clears up the curiosity.

This forum is a place for learning and sharing information about great beer, and the hobby we all love. The homebrewing community is renowned for our sense of camaraderie. Let's all do our best to keep it that way.

Hi all -

The Big Brew recipes this year are taken directly from Gordon Strong's upcoming Modern Homebrew Recipes book. We have heard your concerns on the complicated grain bill, though. If you are looking for a simpler barleywine recipe to brew on May 2, feel free to search the website for past Big Brew recipes!

The Pub / Re: Craft beer tap list app
« on: March 25, 2015, 08:20:01 AM »
Some folks in Richmond, VA came up with a similar app/website called 'Trinkin' a few years ago (or maybe a few months ago... not sure). It's awesome. They have expanded to other cities in VA, too:
