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

21 Locks Brewing

We’ll be joined by 21 Locks Brewing, a new brewery coming soon to Morrisville.  They will talk about the plans for their brewery, their brewing and homebrewing history and will hopefully have some beer to sample.

Iron Brewer VIII

We drew entries for Iron Brewer Round 1 (session beers) but we still have a few spots open if you wish to sign up. Entry fee is $10 for each brewer / team and Round 1 judging will be at our January 2018 meeting.

Del-Val Homebrew Pro-Am Festival

The inaugural Pro-Am Festival is set for Saturday, December 16, 2017 and will be held in the warehouse space at Neshaminy Creek Brewing. A few of the ALEiens recently brewed a pre-prohibition style porter with Jeremy at Neshaminy Creek for the event. If you are interested in volunteering for the event, please sign up here. Even if you can’t volunteer, please consider joining us at the festival and please help spread the word by sharing the event’s FB page with your friends. All net proceeds will be donated to Philabundance.

Monk Melee VII

We are continuing to plan for Monk Melee, our ALEiens-sponsored, BJCP-certified, Belgian-focused homebrew competition. The competition judging will be held on Saturday, January 20, 2018. Please contact John Yeomans if you are interested to judge or help out on the competition day.
