HomeBrewCon 2017 is coming to Minneapolis in June 2017. As the most active home brewing club in the area, you better believe the NBA will be there. We had a blast at NHC in Grand Rapids in 2014, and like to think we have learned a thing or two.
You will be able to find members of the NBA throughout the conference, and feel free to ask us if you need advice on any of the many local breweries or bottle shops. In addition to roaming the conference floor, we have a few dedicated events you should know about.
This page will be updated over the coming weeks as more news is available!
Tuesday June 13th 6-10pm
NorthGate is opening up their doors and their taps for everyone in town for the convention. One of the founders of NorthGate is also a founding member of the NBA, and they understand the passion homebrewers have. In addition to some fantastic English style ales, there will be a few Pro-am collaboration beers on tap, a couple of raffle prizes, and NateDogs will be there with the best hot dogs! The event is free and open to all. Beer and food are pay-as-you-go.
Yakima Valley Hops teamed up with the NBA to brew some fresh local beers with some of the finest of the 2016 hop crop including Tahoma, Medusa, Experimental Stone Fruit, and Experimental Green Machine. These beers will be poured during the expo at the Yakima Valley booth.
