ALEiens Homebrew Club

Spreading the Joys of Home Brewing Throughout Philadelphia and the Universe!

Welcome to the ALEiens Homebrew Club

This is the official website of the ALEiens Homebrew Club serving Philadelphia and its suburbs, Bucks County, Montgomery County, and Central New Jersey.

The ALEiens are dedicated to exchanging out-of-this-world home brewing information and brewing techniques.

Established in May 2008, the ALEiens meet monthly at The Hulmeville Inn.  We have just over 65 paying members and see around 35-45 members at each meeting.  Though, our most popular member is Zymie.  If you haven't met our ALEien Zymie, you're missing out! 

Not a member?  No problem!  Stop in to any meeting, check us out, and if you like it, come back again and become a member.

@ Hulmeville Inn

Ho-ho-homebrew! It's our annual holiday party, beer exchange and label contest. Please try to arrive early so we can begin the meeting promptly at 7:30. Here is how the exchange will work:

  • Bring in a 6-pack (or equivalent) of your best homebrew and/or commercial craft beer. 12oz and 16oz bottles count as "1" while 22oz / 750ml count as "2".
  • Try to label your homebrew bottles so we know what we're drinking and who made it!
  • When you arrive at the meeting, drop off your beers at the table and pick a number out of the hat. Once we're organized, we'll start calling numbers. Each time your number is called, pick out 2 beers (or 1 large bottle) to bring home.

For the label contest, bring in your most creative homebrew label to the meeting. Affix to a bottle or cut it out so we can display them on the fireplace mantel. Everyone will get to vote for their favorites.
