beer-312_1280×960.jpgAh, it’s that time of the year again. Time to break out your mash paddle, fire up the burners and teach someone how to homebrew! According to the American Homebrewers Association, “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 get together and gather up some friends and teach them how to brew beer. It could be possible that your friends may not ever brew a beer again, but I think it’s very important that if you love beer, you understand how beer is made.

But what if you don’t know a friend that homebrews? Well, you always have a friend in Drew Huerter and Mattingly Brewing, as they’re hosting a homebrewing demonstration on November 1st starting at 9AM:

Fellow STL Hops readers,
Homebrewing and other beer enthusiasts are invited to join me to brew a batch at Mattingly Brewing Company on November 1st starting at 9am.
Anyone who would like to bring their gear down and brew a batch is absolutely welcome, just please let me know at additionally, let me know what yeast you would like, and I’ll try to accommodate. If the brewer could also provide a brief bio and/or brewday recipe for us to post on the website, it would be much appreciated.

All questions can also be directed to my email address listed above.
