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

 - Our featured speaker is Adam from Sunny Brae Hops.  He'll talk about growing hops in Central PA for local craft brewers.

 - It's the kick-off for Iron Brewer VII.  Entry fee is $10 per brewer / team and we'll draw styles for Round 1.  Judging for Round 1 will be at our January 2017 meeting, but we'll have all Belgian styles to tie in with our upcoming Monk Melee competition.

 - Our Monk Melee competition is scheduled for Saturday, December 3, 2016, so we'll talk about our plans to make this a YUGE success.

 - The ALEiens are participating in Learn to Brew Day 2016 on Saturday, November 5.  We'll be brewing and hanging out with our friends from Barley Legal and Philly Homeberw Club at Tonewood Brewing Company in Oaklyn, NJ.
