December 7, 2018, marks the 40th anniversary of the American Homebrewers Association (AHA). Time flies when you’re brewing beer, huh?!
Our association all started with the inaugural issue of Zymurgy magazine in 1978. Assembled by a team of three editors, including AHA founder Charlie Papazian, the first issue of Zymurgy not only marked the beginning of the AHA but also of the homebrewing craze we know today. Little did Papazian and the AHA know that homebrewers would grow to one million strong in the United States alone!
To celebrate 40 years, and to appreciate how far we’ve come, we are publishing the very first issue of Zymurgy magazine for you to download and read!
