If you are interested in learning how to homebrew, but you don’t know where to start, Learn to Homebrew Day is a great opportunity to learn about the hobby. This Saturday, November 7, homebrewers across the country will unite for AHA Learn to Homebrew Day. Learn to Homebrew Day was established in 1999 in order to expose non-brewers to the wonders of creating your own beer. Last year, there were 317 registered events for the day with 5,595 participants in 47 states and 4 countries.
You can search the event database to find out where you can stop by an event near you. There currently look to be eight registered events in the Puget Sound area, but more events may be registered by the end of the week.
Here are details for the events that are listed so far:
