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.

AUGUST MEETING

Blue Marble Cysery;

8/25/15 at 7:30pm

ON THE PATIO!!!


Chris from Blue Marble Cysery (Phoenixville, PA) will be speaking to the club! And if I remember correctly, their head guy over there has a background in brewing, and worked for several large area breweries before opening Blue Marble.


From their website: Blue Marble Beverages brings to you a whole new world of flavors. We produce our beverages much like a meadery, a facility that produces honey wine, or Mead. Our flagship Easy-Eve Cysers are more like traditional ciders but at 10% abv, embody a more commanding experience. All of our house products have just a touch of organic agave nectar in the recipe, which helps our fermantations along in many ways, while creating a smoother, satisfying drink that is not too sweet, nor too dry.

Also, if you haven't paid for your workshirt yet, please bring a check or cash tomorrow. The shirts are in, they're just being embroidered. Which means they'll be ready in time for OKTOBERFEST!!!

Finally, Big Brew Day  WINNERS will be announced tonight. Unfortunately, no one from sly fox could make it, but they sent the results and some prizes.  Corey will send us their feedback forms when he gets back from vacation.
