New AHA Story Posted
« on: November 09, 2011, 08:36:05 PM »
Hey Homebrewers!

The AHA has posted a new story about the the History of Homebrewing! :o

"In the beginning, there was beer. It was good. Well, maybe not that good, and maybe not quite at the beginning, but there are some who argue that agriculture and civilization came about because people wanted beer."...

Read the rest here:

Nice historical synopsis. Appreciate the observation about women brewers. Alan Eames wrote that "in the 18th century, nearly 80 percent of all licensed brewers were women."
