Furthering My Homebrew Education With The Homebrew Academy

Sneak Peek Inside The Homebrew Academy

I’ve brewed more than a few batch of homebrewed beer, but I still love to learn more about the whole process, looking for ways to make it easier, make it quicker and of course make it taste better. I think everyone from someone who has never brewed a batch of beer or to someone that has brewed hundreds of batches, is looking to improve their homebrewing skills.

I searched all over the internet looking for more information about homebrewing. There’s a few really good homebrewing forums and message boards out there, however I find them kind of limiting. They’re a great place to ask a question and get well rounded answers. But they are a great place if you’re just looking to improve your knowledge in general.

I was looking for more along the line of something like an ebooks and ecourses that I could check out at home or even while I was at the car repair shop, waiting for them to finish. I came across a handful of ebooks, and I have to tell you that most of them were pretty bad. They either looked like crap or were written poorly.

Then I came across the Homebrew Academy. It was simply more professional and more informative than anything else I found online. I knew right away that this was something that I wanted to try.

I haven’t been disappointed. It’s filled with lots of professional quality videos and well written articles that were loaded with great information and a lot of useful tips. Mixed in there’s some handy dandy checklists and even a few infographics that are really helpful.

The Homebrew Academy is broken into three different courses, one for beginners ($20), advanced ($40) and one that covers it all ($50).

I paid for the whole course, mainly for the advanced material, but right now I’m working my way through the beginners section and I’m finding a lot of useful tips to use with my brewing. I can’t wait to get to the more advanced sections and see what I learn there.

I’ll have a full review of the Homebrew Academy later this month, along with an interview with Billy Broas the man behind the Academy.

A little bit of disclosure, I’m an affiliate for the Homebrew Academy. However, that’s not the only reason that I’m linking to the HBA. I think it’s a great course, full of lots of information.

About the author /


I'm a former coffee blogger, but I’ve been getting to know some really good craft beers and really getting into home brewing. I couldn’t resist starting this little project called Passion For The Pint. When I’m not blogging about coffee or beer, you can find me exploring New Orleans’ wide range of eateries, rooting for the New York Yankees (don’t hate me, I’m originally from New York), working out to burn off the beer calories or reading about beer.
