Registration for Homebrew Con™ Opens April 6

Fermentation fans of all skill levels to convene for 43rd annual homebrewing conference June 17-19


Homebrewers and fermentation hobbyists around the country are invited to join the American Homebrewers Association on June 17-19 for the 43rd annual Homebrew Con—a three-day conference celebrating the art of brewing beer, making cider, mead, and kombucha, and learning fermentation techniques. Attendees of all experience levels will attend the online event from the comfort of their own homes. This year, Homebrew Con features a keynote speaker, a virtual expo hall, and more than 20 live seminars with access to post-event recordings. The conference concludes with the National Homebrew Competition awards ceremony, the world’s largest international amateur beer competition recognizing outstanding homebrewed beer, mead, and cider.


Homebrew Con welcomes anyone of legal drinking age interested in the hobby of homebrewing, mead- or cidermaking to attend seminars led by experts in topics ranging from techniques and ingredients to history and the latest homebrewing trends. Both experienced professional brewers and homebrewers just getting their toes wet are invited to deepen their knowledge and immerse themselves in everything fermentation.
