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.

Hop Review

We will be reviewing the four categories of hops.

Each category will have a representative hop to smell, taste in a spiked beer, and a commercial example highlighting the hop.

Initiation of the BJCP review your brew.  Bring 2 bottles of your brew labeled with the BJCP 2015 style category to be compared and your email address.  

BJCP certified judges will review without knowing the brewer and feedback will be provided via e-mail pdf.
