Happy National Hombrew Day!
In honor of #NationalHomebrewDay, I’m brewing a German Hefeweizen and tweeting all day. On top of that, I joined the AHA this year and that’s what I wanted to talk about.
The American Homebrewers Association was started by Charlie Papazian as the homebrewing arm of The Brewers Association. They raise awareness AND lobby government at many levels to get laws changed in favor of homebrewing across the US. Some of the laws on the books have been around since prohibition and I can’t imagine how difficult it would be to get them changed without an organization like the AHA going to bat.
I joined, and I want you to join too (I am not affiliated in any way and they’re not paying me to say this).
I also talk about a new feature of the WNY Brews website. Go to DrinkThisBuffalo.com and tell us what your favorite beer is. This is not untappd, we don’t need to know every beer, just one you think we should all know about. If you call in we’ll play your recording, and if you email, we’ll read it for you.
Thank you, we’ll see you on episode 21!
