Fellow homebrewers, I hope everyone is healthy and happy and finding some relaxation or inspiration in this time of social absence. Admittedly, this President’s message was one I procrastinated on. While we can’t be together there is plenty we can do as homebrewer individuals to contribute. If you’re a lover of good beer please support our local brew pubs and breweries in Evansville, Henderson and the surrounding areas that rely on foot traffic or take home service to stay afloat. As homebrewers, especially during this time, getting ingredients might take a bit longer than before so if you’re going to buy, plan out a few brews in advance and buy ingredients in bulk as you can. As you well know, the AHA Big Brew Day is typically the first Saturday in May; our club had planned a group beer for One Wort Many Beers project on May 8th that for all intents and purposes we will push back for everyone’s safety. While we cant brew together, AHA is organizing a virtual Big Brew Day. Follow this link https://www.homebrewersassociation.org/aha-events/national-homebrew-day/big-brew-registration/
and fill out the Pledge form and you will receive $5 off an AHA Membership! It goes without saying that our April meeting will not be able to happen, but the board and I are keeping in touch and we will keep everyone in the loop. To all those out there whether in the thicket of this fight or at home in sanctuary, keep brewing, thinking of your fellow brother and sister, stay safe and at the end of the day remember the motto of many a troubled homebrewer; relax, dont worry, have a homebrew.
