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.

25 lbs. pilsner to sell

Hello Everyone,Bought today.  I only needed 30 pounds of pilsner for my upcoming recipes but found it just as cheap to buy a full 55 lb. bag of pilsner.  So does anyone want to buy the extra 25 lbs. of Avanguard Pilsner malt for $25?  If you have no objections we'll trade at a meeting.Cheers.JeffSee More

Meet us at Noon, grab a pint with the club, and check out this new brewery just over the bridge. Don't expect flights if we bring a huge crowd (which we will, of course), but hey, we can always just share amongst ourselves!!

The invasion is open to all paid members, and you can bring a plus 1 non-ALEien. And don't forget to wear your club gear!

MAY MEETING

MICRO MATIC DRAFT SYSTEMS

5/26/15 at 7:30pm

(hopefully we can hold this outside on the deck!)

Micro Matic’s lead techs will be the guest speakers for the May meeting. Micro Matic produces, sells, and installs draft keg beer dispensing equipment.  They will be talking about topics such as: keg package, temperature and storage, system balancing, dispense equipment components, troubleshooting, dispensing, glassware, and line cleaning.  If you’re looking to learn more about draft system and dispensing, this is going to be a very informative meeting.  Also, even if you don’t keg, get a look into how draft systems work!
