Homebrewing Hobby Grows

July 8th, 2013

3,400 homebrewers attended the National Homebrewer’s Conference in Philly!  Wow!  Homebrewing as a hobby is growing by leaps and bounds and we can’t wait to bring the BeerBox™ to market so that home brewing can become more convenient, portable and fun!

Water, yeast, tasting tips and more!  So many sessions at the NHC were valuable to us as homebrewer’s as we try to perfect our system.  Had a chat with Brad Smith, BeerSmith, since we were inspired to go all grain with a BIAB system based on his lecture at the 2012 NHC conference and needed some advice about our process.  We bought a new dual temperature controller to keep the temperature just right in both the fermenter cooler and the refrigerator and of course, new beer t-shirts.  Love the saying on the Iron Hill Brewery: “Our Beer Snobs Can Beat Up Your Wine Snobs.”

Here are some celebrity shots from Pro Brewer’s Night – fun was had by all!
