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.

December Holiday Meeting: 12/16/14 (date moved due to the holidays)

HOLIDAY BEER EXCHANGE

The party will be featuring our Holiday Beer Exchange. Last year we had an awesome turnout for this, again!  For all of you first timers, this is how it goes down:

  • If you want to participate, bring in a 6 pack of your best home brew. 12oz and 16oz bottles count as 1, 22oz and 750ml count as 2. If you do not have any home brew ready for this, you can bring in a commercial craft beer. 
  • We will have a designated table to drop the beer off when you come upstairs. When you drop your beer off, you will receive a random number that you pick out of a hat.
  • Once we are organized and all beer has been added to the table, we will begin calling numbers. When your number is called, come up to the table and pick up 2 beers (1 if it is a big bottle). We will have 3 rounds total and the goal is to come home with a 6 pack of different beers. Keep your 6 pack holders so you have something to carry the beer home in.
  • Please try and arrive early to this meeting as we plan on starting the meeting at 7:30 promptly.  There will be event announcements like always, then we will start calling numbers!
  • We'll be drinking and munching on some snacks all night (hopefully big 'ole blocks of cheese)!

We are holding a fundraiser for The Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission (Penndel & Philly).  Check out non-perishable food suggestions and other items that can be donated here.  Please bring what you can to our 12/16/14 Holiday meeting to help out those in need this winter!

Do-over in Düsseldorf!

Had the chance to visit a few places in Düsseldorf the other day - travelling with friends from the Braustelle in Cologne and hitting no less than 7 brewereies and/or brewpubs.

A short train ride up, and then we went to work at Alter Bahnhof, or "Gulasch", a recent addition on the other side of hte Rhein:…
