Celebrating the homebrew-nited states, and local craft breweries across the nation, the American Homebrewers Association (AHA) — the leading community for homebrewers — recently unveiled its 2019 collection of Craft Beer Clone Recipes.
“From coast to coast, there is no shortage of great craft breweries and beer lovers with a passion for homebrewing,” said Gary Glass, director, American Homebrewers Association. “We are pleased to once again offer recipes featuring a variety of beer styles to engage hobbyists and homebrewers of all experience levels.”
The recipes represent signature styles from breweries in all 50 states and Washington, D.C.—from Wood Chipper IPA by Fargo Brewing Company in North Dakota, to CocoWeizen from Honolulu Beer Works in Hawaii. Each commercial recipe is scaled down to 5-10 gallon batch sizes for brewing at home.
