An Amateur Beer-Making Convention Is Coming To Minnesota
If you’re a craft beer drinker who likes hitting up breweries, you’ve probably thought about how awesome it would be to make your own brew. I certainly have, even if I’m not sure I have the patience, skill, knowledge, or (let’s be honest) drive to pull it off. I’ve heard from a few sources that making your own brew is a whole thing.
That being said, I do like drinking other people’s beer. So if you’re in the same boat as me, or you’re actually willing and interested in learning how to craft your own beer, you might want to check out the upcoming 39th annual Homebrew Con 2017 which takes place in Minneapolis this week.
It’s all going down Thursday through Saturday at the Minneapolis Convention Center, and over 2,300 amateur beer makers are expected to be there showing what they got.
They’ll have 55 different seminars involving beer making – and you can definitely expect beer drinking to occur, too.
The only catch? It costs $275 to register for the full event, or $225 if you want to pass on the seminars and go straight to beer sampling. Another catch is that you also have to be a member of the American Homebrewers Association or Brewers Association to attend. That’s all a bit much for me, but if you’re seriously looking into crafting your own beer, it might be worth the investment.
You can get more info at the official Homebrew Con 2017 website.
