This week a new website was launched by the Brewers Association for the Homebrewer segment of their membership. Not only is the new site more visually appealing than the old segment of the AHA site, it is far more functional.
One of the biggest functionality and association building aspects of the new site is that the forums are open for reading and participation to anyone – not just members. Simply register on the site (for free) and you can jump right into the conversation. This is a great move for building community and encouraging more potential members to “check things out”.
The new wiki also looks encouraging, with tons of recipes and a useful brewing dictionary. It’s nice that this site was launched with lots of valuable content, rather than just as a blank canvas, making the site useful right out of the gate.
I applaud the AHA for offering free access to many of the valuable resources on there (but certainly encourage any active homebrewers to pony up the $40 for a membership – there are tons of additional advantages). So cheers to all of those involved over at the AHA – the site looks great. Check it out yourself at www.homebrewersassociation.orgTags: AHA, Brewers Association, homebrew
