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 at the St. Louis Wine and Beermaking shop, as they’re hosting a homebrewing demonstration on November 6th running from 9AM-4PM:

All grain demonstrations starting at 9AM-4PM at St. Louis Wine & Beer Making.  Local brew club memebers from St. Louis Brews, Garage Brewers Society and East Side Brewers will be on hand doing demonstrations and answering homebrew questions.

If you’re looking for some used equipment, you’re also in luck as the they’ll also also be running a St. Louis Area Brewers Flea Market at St. Louis Wine and Beermaking from 11AM-12:30PM. Homebrewers from the area will be peddling their wares and you may be able to pick up quite a bargain on some used equipment.

You can also sell your old equipment. For more information about this event, please check out this thread on the St. Louis Brews forum.
