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.

"Cattani's US 1 Beer at 305 W Lincoln Hwy, Penndel, PA 19047 charges about $17 for 5#. A little more but hours are good, including Sundays and you keep your tank."

Homebrew Club News and Information

CONGRATS TO THE NEWEST PHILLY BEER GEEK...

JESS STREETER

ALEiens VP hailing from Naked Brewing Company

Jess won the 2014 PHILLY BEER GEEK competition during Philly Beer Week this year.  I am a crappy President and forgot to announce it!  This makes The Hulmeville Inn's 5th Philly Beer Geek and the ALEiens' 4th/5th-ish beer geek. CONGRATS JESS! You may address her by Queen Beer Geek now.  Michael Ryan Lawrence is passé, which makes Hawk and I look like fossils.  Jess took home over $3g worth of prizes after answering beer trivia, blind beer tasting, and rapping beer lyrics to the Fresh Prince theme song.  CONGRATS AGAIN!  -Natalie (ps- those are doves!)

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.
