Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

People of Miami – put down your Presidentes. (Ok, you can finish them, first). Keep the bottles. You will soon be filling them with delicious beer of your own creation.

Tomorrow is the ninth annual “Teach a friend to homebrew day.” While it hasn’t officially been recognized as a national holiday, the event has already taken on holy significance in the hearts and minds of all real Americans –and real non-Americans.

Last year, 1,200 participants brewed 2,200 gallons on Teach a Friend to Homebrew Day at 51 sites worldwide (including Canada, South Africa, Nigeria, England, Indonesia, and United States).

I was going to produce a how-to video about making a batch of beer. But an intregal part of the brewing process is drinking your old beer. And so I forgot.

If you’re interested, e-mail an officer of your local homebrew outpost. You can get their contact at Miami-homebrew.org. Beer. --Calvin Godfrey

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
