If you’re interested in learning how to make your own beer, Learn to Homebrew Day is a great opportunity to explore the hobby.
Established by the American Homebrewers Association in 1999, Learn to Homebrew Day is an occasion for beer lovers worldwide to brew, share their knowledge, and celebrate the hobby of homebrewing.
It’s held annually on the first Saturday in November.
In Memphis, the Memphis Brewers Association homebrew club is holding a Learn to Homebrew Day event this weekend on Saturday, Nov. 4. The free event will be hosted at Cooper House Project, 906 S. Cooper, in Midtown.
Anyone interested in homebrewing is invited to come out to Learn to Homebrew Day.
“We’re looking for people that are currently brewing or interested in brewing. We even have a few members … that don’t brew. They just like beer and they want to learn about the process,” said Jay Campbell, president of the Memphis Brewers Association.
Three members of the homebrew club will be set up on Cooper House Project’s covered side patio, demonstrating the homebrewing process from start to finish and answering questions.
Two brewers will be using a propane system, and one will be using an electric system. Each brewer will be making a unique recipe to show the variety of grains and hops used for different styles of beer.
The brewers will be doing all-grain batches, even grinding the grains at the start.
The brew day will begin around 9 a.m. and end at approximately 3 p.m. People are welcome to stop by anytime during the day.
