Learn to Homebrew Day

Saturday, November 7 at 10:00am

The goal is to teach our non-brewer friends the art of making beer at home. Learn to Homebrew Day (LTHD) was established by the American Homebrewers Association (AHA) in 1999 to encourage homebrewers to introduce their non-brewer friends and family to the most rewarding hobby, obsession and lifestyle since the beginning of time! Mark your calendars… see you there.
