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

Iron Brewer Round 1

We'll be judging Round 1 entries featuring Belgian style beers with cherry, lemon, rye or ginger. PARTICIPANTS - Bring a 6-pack of your beer and the $10 entry fee. Check in when you arrive so that we can label your beer. Of course don't judge in the category that you've entered. EVERYONE ELSE - sit at any table. The top 2 entries in each of the 4 categories, plus the overall top scoring 3rd place beer, will advance to Round 2.

War of the Worts

Registration is now open for War of the Worts, the region's largest homebrew competition. Entry drop off runs through Feb 10 at the usual spots. In addition, you may bring your registered entries to our January meeting and we'll get them to one of the drop off locations. They will potentially cap the number of entries this year, so register sooner than later if you're interested.


ALEiens Homebrew Club Facebook GROUP.  Open group, click to join, a more organized way to share information and ideas on Facebook.  Dues are $25 a year (March).  *The "MEMBER" on your profile picture means you are a paid member.*
