Learn How To Brew Day @ Coastal Empire Beer Company
Nov 2 @ 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Savannah Brewers League will have multiple brewers brewing beer/cider/mead at Coastal Empire Beer Company. This event will help show the public what goes into their beer by getting them involved in the process. All experience levels (non-brewer to Professional) are welcome to attend. From grain to glass come see some brewing magic by our home brewers and Coastal Empires brewers as we collaborate on this AHA nation wide event.

On the first Saturday in November, thousands of people will gather at Learn to Homebrew Day sites worldwide to brew beer and and learn about the hobby of homebrewing. In 1999, Learn To Homebrew Day was established by the American Homebrewers Association to promote the most rewarding, and delicious activity of all time — homebrewing.
