We are excited to welcome the American Homebrewers Association (AHA) for the first AHA Rally in Southern Oregon! The AHA hosts several Rallies all around the country every year, with 4,500 members meeting at 31 Rallies (the most ever!) in 2014. These gatherings are great opportunities to meet other beer enthusiasts in the area, share stories and recipes, and kick back with some beers in a commercial brewery setting. The Rally will take place at our brewpub in Ashland on Sunday, February 22nd, 2-5pm.
Attendees will enjoy beer samples, take home a Rally-exclusive gift from the AHA, and enter to win prizes from both the AHA and Standing Stone. Attendees will also have the opportunity to meet Standing Stone brewers and staff, take a VIP brewery tour, and mingle with other local homebrewers.
As a special feature for our Rally, Standing Stone will do a wort give-away. Each attendee gets to take home 5 gallons of wort produced by us! AHA members will show up to the Rally with a pre-sanitized carboy or bucket. Our brewery staff will be there to help disperse the boiled and chilled wort to those who want to participate. Homebrewers can then ferment their beer and compare flavors with others from the Rally.
AHA Rallies are free to current AHA members. Non-members can join online, or sign up onsite at a discounted member rate. Save time and fill out a membership form in advance to bring with you to the Rally. You can also RSVP online to help us properly prepare for the event.
We’re thrilled to bring this beer-community get-together to Ashland. Sign up, mark your calendar, and get ready for an afternoon of beer, tours, prizes and more. Let’s show the home brewing community how Southern Oregon does a Rally!
