Freshly Brewed — Learn to Homebrew Day is 11/3

Homebrewers and homebrew retailers, earmark your calendars for Saturday, November 3, as we join the celebration of the 20th annual Learn to Homebrew Day tradition established by the American Homebrewers Association. On this day, thousands of homebrewers get together to brew, and to teach others how to brew. Looking for a schedule of events in your area? Check out the American Homebrewers Association webpage to find local events.

The American Homebrewers Association provides many resources dedicated to our craft. The above link also allows you to attain information relating to homebrewing tutorials, homebrewing supplies, home brew periodicals and homebrewing steps.

What will be in your homebrew kettle? Might you be experimenting with our newest malt, Dark Munich Malt 30L?  Perhaps a unique malt from Briess like Carabrown? Or how about brewing a big, bold lager to ferment into the cooler months on the calendar. However you get there, we appreciate to ride shotgun along the way.

At Briess we work for beer. From our growers to our maltsters, we’re as passionate about craft and homebrew beer as you are. So next time you fire up the kettle, brew with our handcrafted specialty malts and taste the passion for yourself.
