No December Meeting

Just a quick reminder that there will be no December meeting.  Instead we will be having our annual Christmas Party on December 9th at the Grande Park Clubhouse.  The Christmas party is open to all current PALE members.  Our next meeting will be on January 5th at Hopvine in Aurora.  For anyone looking to join PALE email for details or just come out to the meeting in January

Learn To Homebrew Day


Learn to Homebrew Day was established by the American Homebrewers Association in 1999 to encourage homebrewers to introduce their non-brewer friends and family to the most rewarding hobby, obsession and lifestyle since the beginning of time!

Through beer making, demonstrations, tastings and other educational efforts, LTHD events around the world are spreading the joy of home brewing far and wide, so don’t miss out!

Come out to the shop and bring some friends for a fun-filled day of homebrewing and beer!
