That’s what us homebrewers call it. The hobby is at an all-time high in popularity with over 1,000,000 people brewing their own beer in the United States.
Why is it addicting? Why is it so popular? Simple – because it’s so damn fun.
Seriously, what is cooler than making your own beer?
If you love beer and doing things with your hands, then you will love homebrewing.
The Homebrew Academy teaches people how to homebrew. Our mission is to make it as easy as possible to break into the hobby and have success. Once our members are brewing great beer (it doesn’t take long), they then dive deeper into The Academy to make their beer even better.
About Billy, Head Beer Guy at the Homebrew Academy
Hey, I’m Billy.

If you haven’t noticed, I’m a huge craft beer fan and homebrewing geek. I started this blog to share this passion with all the other beer lovers out there. Our readers found the brewing tips so helpful that I turned them into a comprehensive online course.
Now, years later, I’m proud to say that we’ve graduated thousands of beer students! Nothing makes me happier than when a new homebrewer tastes their first batch of beer and tells me how good it tastes.
In case you thought this was a one-man operation, I’m proud to be joined by a fantastic group of brewing friends over on the Homebrew Academy Blog. We share tips, news, and sometimes… our blunders.
It’s a blast, and we’d love to hear from you in the comments.
