Saturday Novemebr 3rd is Teach a Friend to homebrew day! We will be hosting this annual event on our patio, so come on up from 10-2pm and brew a batch with the local homebrew clubs. Author Doug Hoverson will be there signing copies of his recently published book detailing the history of Minnesota Brewing – Land of Amber Waters: The History of Brewing in Minnesota.
The American Homebrewers Association (AHA) Teach a Friend to Homebrew Day is an international event to introduce people to the homebrewing hobby and establish relationships with local homebrew supply shops.

Each year on the first Saturday in November, homebrewers around the world are encouraged to invite non-brewing and brewing friends and family to celebrate Teach a Friend to Homebrew Day and brew a batch of beer together.

    Sad I’m gonna miss all the event cause I’ll be outta the country. Teach a friend to homebrew day has always been a great time at Barley John’s. Lots of great homebrew and people.
