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.
PAUL FROM WINE, BARLEY, AND HOPS IS GIVING BACK 5% OF MEMBER'S PURCHASES AT THE STORE TO THE CLUB. PLEASE LET HIM KNOW IF YOU'RE A MEMBER WHEN YOU PAY!
BJCP How To
2/23/16 at 7:30pm
Club member extraordinaire, John Yeomans, is going to be talking to the club about entering your beer into BJCP competitions. He will be talking about when the local competitions are, what styles have the least amount of entries (enter in those!), discuss the scoring sheet, and seeing if we can get more ALEiens to place. He will also be leading a how-to judge and use a BCJP score sheet to judge a commercial vs a homebrewed Porter.
Intention to run for office: If you are interested in running for an ALEiens office position in March, now is the time to announce it. We need to fill 2 positions: meeting coordinator/president and a VP of Events. The Meeting Coordinator will schedule and run all meetings, finding outside people or members to speak at meetings. The VP of Events will be in charge of our in house events like Iron Brewer and Big Brew Day. You may also run for any of the other positions that our officers are rerunning for: VP of Education, Treasure/Website, Secretary.
Dues and Elections will be held in March. It is $25 per year. If you have a membership card, please bring your 2015 card as we have 2016 icons to attach to them once you pay.
**Big Brew Day is on Saturday, 4/30/16. We bumped it up one week so we don't compete with a local beer fest. Sign ups are now happening, here.**
ALEiens Homebrew Club Facebook GROUP. Open group, click to join, a more organized way to share information and ideas on facebook. Dues are $25 a year (March). *The "MEMBER" on your profile picture means you are a paid member.*
