Fall-Back Beer Fest

Held each year on the day we turn the clocks back, Fall-Back Beer Fest is not only a celebration of beer, but also the people who make it.

With 100+ beers being poured by the brewers themselves from 30+ Colorado breweries, festival goers are sure to walk away having learned something new about their favorite beer from the people who created it.

FBBF also coincides with the American Homebrewers Associations Annual Learn To Homebrew Day. To help celebrate, a number of AHA sanctioned homebrewing clubs will be present and brewing for everyone to watch.

With seminars from beer glass experts, food pairings from certified cicerones, demonstrations from homebrewing equipment fabricators, samples from hop farms, giveaways from local homebrew supply shops, and much more, there is sure to be something for everyone.

Also, FBBF is family-friendly! Helping with the celebration of brewing are Colorado craft soda breweries pouring samples for guests of all ages! Plus, for everyone's entertainment, live music from Colorado bluegrass and rockabilly bands throughout the day!

Learn to Homebrew Day

Learn to Homebrew Day (LTHD) was established by the American Homebrewers Association (AHA) 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 homebrewing far and wide, so don't miss out!

Celebrate Learn to Homebrew Day in 2014

Spread the Joy

The goal of LTHD is to teach our non-brewer friends the art of making beer at home, and the AHA has all the material you need to teach people of all skill levels.

Promotional materials: if you are hosting a LTHD event that is open to the public, look for the AHA's downloadable promotional materials to help spread the word about your gathering (coming soon).

Let's Brew: explore this section for brewing tutorials, tips on making better beer and tasty recipes.

Zymurgy: An Introduction to Homebrewing: request physical copies of the AHA's guide for the new brewer, or access it online.

Homebrewopedia: a wiki-style resource containing a large library of recipes, a glossary of brewing terms, homebrew club resources and much more!

AHA store: pick up the latest homebrewing books or issues of Zymurgy magazine.
