Then, this Sunday, July 13, the American Homebrewers Association is throwing a Rally at Revolution Brewing Company in Chicago to celebrate the joys of homebrewing and connect beer enthusiasts in the area.
The Rally will feature a VIP tour of the brewery, complimentary beer samples, great prizes, and more! Local homebrewing clubs are invited and encouraged to come brew on site. Plus, all attendees will take home a special Rally-exclusive gift from the AHA. The rally starts at 1PM and ends at 4PM. It takes place at the Revolution Brewing Tap Room at 3340 N. Kedzie Ave. Rallies are free for current AHA members. Non-members can join online, or sign up for a discounted member rate at the Rally. Please RSVP for the event.
