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 25 paying members and see around 20 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.

Steve Roman brewed since May.

Might be out of season but brewed a Schwarzbier that pairs really well with barbecue. Also brewed Witbier, Homage to Magic Hat #9, Homage to Deschutes Fresh Squeezed IPA (Lower ABV), Homage to Victory Golden Monkey and a Czech Pils since late May.
