Denver to Host Homebrewers
Dec 15, 2006 - Denver will host the National Homebrewers Conference June 21-23, the world's largest conference devoted entirely to amateur brewers.
"I am very excited to have the AHA Conference coming to Denver in 2007," said American Homebrewers Association director Gary Glass. "We have an amazing group of homebrewers working together from several Colorado and Wyoming clubs to put on one of the best conferences ever." The AHA is based in nearby Boulder, where it was founded 28 years ago.
This year local homebrewers from homebrew clubs across Colorado will assist the AHA and local clubs in hosting the event in Denver at Four Points by Sheraton, Denver Southeast.
"The Four Points by Sheraton Denver Southeast will be an ideal venue for this conference as the hotel is very beer friendly and is just minutes away from the many great beer venues in downtown Denver via the new light rail line," Glass says.
The conference attracts a large number of attendees because of the focus on educating homebrewing hobbyists and beer lovers. National award-winning professional and amateur brewers give three days of seminars on beer and brewing.
Speakers for this year's NHC include: Peter Bouckaert of New Belgium Brewing, Vinnie Cilurzo of Russian River Brewing, and author Lucy Saunders.
