The AHA celebrates its 39th anniversary by sharing the original issue of Zymurgy magazine
Can you believe it? December 7, 2017, marks the 39th anniversary of Charlie Papazian publishing the first issue of Zymurgy magazine and launching the American Homebrewers Association.
A lot has changed over the last 39 years in the world of homebrewing, most notably the legalization of making beer at home in all fifty of the United States, but the AHA continues to help people around the world make damn good beer at home!
Since registering its first member in 1978, the American Homebrewers Association has grown to over 44,000 members around the globe. These card-carrying members provide the support that makes the homebrewing not-for-profit possible, and you can support the AHA, too!
In celebration of our anniversary, we are sharing the original issue of Zymurgy magazine for download! It truly is a blast from the past seeing homebrew advertisements nearly four decades old. Be sure to keep an eye out for the announcement of the first-ever National Homebrew Competition, which has since grown to be the world’s largest beer competition!
