Happy Birthday AHA!
« on: December 07, 2011, 01:48:36 PM »
Today we have a very special birthday, guess who? It's us! Happy Birthday American Homebrewers Association!

It's our thirty-third birthday today, no presents necessary! Instead, just raise a pint of homebrew and cheers to thirty-three years of the great art of homebrewing! Feel free to make a toast too of course if you're the eloquent type.

Cheers!

Didn't know the AHA had been around that long, very nice.

Wonder why they chose Pearl Harbor Day?

Since LOTR just came up on another thread, congratulations AHA, you're now considered an "adult" in Hobbit years

From what Charlie Papazian has told me, that was the day that they got the first issue of Zymurgy, which was essentially a newsletter back then, from the printer.
