« on: October 14, 2011, 02:32:11 PM »
AHA Learn to Homebrew Day is November 5, 2011.

To help you prepare for your AHA Learn to Homebrew Day event, please take advantages of the resources posted on www.homebrewersassociation.org/pages/events/learn-to-homebrew-day/how-to-celebrate.

•   Download a writeable PDF of the Learn to Homebrew Day poster.  Once you fill in your event information, print it out and hang up in your local homebrew shop or at a club meeting.. http://bit.ly/LTHD_Poster

•   Use the customizable press release. Again, personalize this document and send it to your local paper. (Since this is a word doc, you have to go to the website to open.)

•   Request copies of Zymurgy: An Introduction to Homebrewing. Please email me, Kathryn@BrewersAssociation.org, with the number of copies you need and where to send them.

Cheers,
Kathryn

I'm pretty sure Charlie and Roseanne will be there. Not 100% positive though. Charlie Papazian will be and I know he's old friends with them.

General Homebrew Discussion / AHA Big Brew Video Contest
« on: May 26, 2011, 08:33:15 PM »
Thank all of you for participating in AHA Big Brew 2011! You are the people that make this event special and allow new brewers to see how much fun it is to be a part of the homebrewing community. Thank you for sharing your experiences and good luck brewing in the future. We got an amazing turn out across the country with over 290 sites, 1030 batches (7,941 gallons!) and over 3,750 participants reported so far.

This year there was a great collection of videos to choose from. There were videos with personalized mash paddles, all sorts of great, unique gadgets and systems, and of course plenty of brewing. The most important thing however is that AHA Big Brew is an event which brings homebrewers of all different skill levels and backgrounds together. As always, we encourage and support the growth of AHA homebrew clubs and the development of talented homebrewers alike.

And the winners are....

General Homebrew Discussion / Re: AHA Membership
« on: May 26, 2011, 07:38:33 AM »
If you need your member number keep for eyes on your email for a welcome email. Soon after your membership is processed, you'll get an official welcome email from the AHA. It's all fancy html (looks like the website) and has your 9-digit member number listed at the top.

If you  just can't wait, you can always email info@brewersassociation.org.

Zymurgy mails every other month, so sometimes it seems like a while before you get your first one. The next issue mails around June 17ish and the list for that will likely be pulled close to the first of June. If you're membership is in before June, you should get that one. You would have needed an active membership by the first of April to get the May/June issue.

cheers!
