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.

JULY MEETING

DEER CREEK MALTHOUSE;

Plus BONUS Founders Tap Takeover

7/28/15 at 7:30pm

ON THE PATIO!!!

The folks from Deer Creek Malthouse will be on hand tomorrow to talk about grains, malting, and what it feels like to be the first malthouse in PA since those crazy folks in DC banned all the booze!  They'll also have grains on hand to buy, $2.75/lb is their going rate for clubs. In addition to speaking about their finely malted products, Avery is going to have Tired Hands Tuff Leather, a 1.5% saison brewed with all Deer Creek malts. If anyone is interested in other local brews made with their stuff, see the list here.  And if anyone else from the club can score a growler or two of any of these beers for the meeting, we can reimburse you by buying you some grain from these guys!

We also have a bonus Founders tap takeover going on tomorrow! Just don't forget to tell Bruce you want it in a plastic cup since we'll be on the patio. Don't you dare anger Bruce, fellow ALEiens. It's just bad form.

Tap list: Nitro Pale, All Day IPA, KBS, Breakfast Stout 2014, Blushing Monk, Devil Dancer, Double Trouble, Rubaeus

Also, if you haven't paid for your workshirt yet, please bring a check or cash tomorrow. Natalie will be updating us on the status.

Finally, Big Brew Day Beers are due tomorrow, and will be judged at sly fox before the next meeting. Tomorrow is your only chance to turn them in. So bring 2 12 oz bottles or 1 22oz, and label it however you see fit, in your typical BJCP fashion (name, style, whatevers, rubberbanded to the bottles)
