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

It's time to judge Round 1 entries for Iron Brewer VII! Please note:

  • If you signed up to participate in the competition, bring in a 6-pack of your beer. Your bottles should be free of identifying labels, so make sure you check in with a club officer so your beer can be properly tagged.
  • All club members will be able to judge, so please sit at one of the category tables (1 - Biere de Garde, 2 - Saison, 3 - Belgian Dubbel and 4 - Belgian Tripel).
  • Of course, participants may not judge in their own category, so sit at any of the other 3 tables.

The top 2 entries from each category, plus 1 wild-card (for a total of 9 entries), will move on to Round 2. We'll also pick Round 2 ingredients so the winners can start preparing for the next judging at our April meeting.
