Founded in founded in 1978 by homebrew legend Charlie Papazian, the American Homebrewers Association (AHA) is dedicated to empowering homebrewers to make the best beer in the world through legal advocacy and educational resources. Besides having a full time staff of eight, did you know that the AHA has a governing committee comprised of fifteen member-elected volunteers that help shape the policy and activities on members’ behalf? In case you have not heard, the AHA Governing Committee elections are once again upon us and I am humbled to announce I have been nominated by Southern California area homebrewers to run for one of the five open seats this year.
My AHA election profile does a good job of covering the basics of who I am and why I am running, but I thought it might be helpful to expand on a few questions I have already heard a few folks ask. I appreciate your vote, please feel free to reach out to me with any questions you might have.
I generally make no secret to anyone that will listen that I am a big fan of what Denny and Drew are up to over at Experimental Homebrewing; I was tickled pink when I managed to wrangle Drew down to come and talk Saison to my homebrew club The Society of Barley Engineers. Never one to let an opportunity for good content go to waste, Drew brought his recording equipment and sat me and 2016 Homebrewer of the Year winner Nick Corona down to talk about homebrewing in San Diego.
