RVA Beer Week 2015: It’s National Learn To Homebrew Day

RVA Beer Week Logo

Good morning, Richmond! On this next to last day of RVA Beer Week (November 1 -8), you can learn to homebrew. Yes, you too! Today Saturday November 7th is the American Homebrewers’ Association’s 17th annual Learn to Homebrew Day. If you’ve been interested in brewing or just have the slightest curiosity, meet up with one of our local homebrew clubs as they brew.

Members of Mentoring Advanced Standards of Homebrewing (M.A.S.H.) will have their brew day down at Artisans Wine & Homebrew starting at 9am.

Meanwhile the James River Homebrewers will host their annual ClusterBrew at Original Gravity Homebrew Supplies starting at 10am.

The ClusterBrew is an annual JRHB inter-club competition where our current Competition Coordinator (Michael Boitnott) decides upon the rules; then it is brewed at a specified event and judged by the club at the annual Winter Party. This year was inspired by Iron Chef America, so the secret ingredient that must be used is coffee. More points for originality may be awarded if used in something other than a porter or stout.

Today is a great day to pick up a new hobby.
