Library to host how to brew beer workshop

Beer workshop

PALMDALE – The Palmdale City Library will host a workshop on how to brew beer on Wednesday, June 5 at 6 p.m. in the Primrose Room of the Chimbole Cultural Center, located at 38350 Sierra Highway in Palmdale.

“President Jimmy Carter legalized homebrewing in 1979, and it began a beer revolution that began in kitchens and has since resulted in a growing industry of craft brewing today,” said Palmdale City Library Director Thomas Vose. “This workshop will show you how what you need and how simple it is to make beer just the way you like it.”

The workshop will be hosted by the Brewing Enthusiasts of the Antelope Valley Region (BEAVR).

BEAVR was formed in 2009 as a way to bring together homebrewers in the Antelope Valley region. The club is made up of veterans and beginners and is open to local beer fanatics interested in learning about homebrewing.

Registration is not necessary, but space is limited.

The Palmdale City Library is open seven days a week. Hours of operation are Monday through Thursday from 10 am to 8 pm; Friday and Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm; and Sunday from 1 to 5 pm.

For more information, please call the Palmdale City Library at 661-267-5600 or TDD 267-5167, or visit

    Wow, finally something interesting to do in town. More things like this should be going on, they create community bonding. Can’t wait to go hang out with the A.V.’s beer aficionados.

    Yes, by all means lets utilize public resources to endorse drinking alcoholic beverages and then we can spend more on sobriety checkpoints too.

      The correlation between brewing your own beer, a hobby, and driving under the influence is equivalent to the correlation between art painting and graffiti. Perhaps we should ban all art classes and art books from the public library. We wouldn’t want to use public resources to ensorse something that may encourage deviant behavior.

    So I take it I’ll be able to attend the ‘how to grow marijuana’ some time next week, or, you know, that might be considered narrow minded. Back in prohibition times you would be seem as an actual threat to the government and the citizens that it protected and treated as such (raids, arrests, forcible seizure of assets and more). Sounds like Palmdale SD busting, wait… weeing out those shops, huh? Back in the era, Elliot Ness was just doing his job, right? Didn’t work then, why would it work now? A country as free as this one should consider how we Americans have acted to being told not to do something and be obedient to the king and his … czars….
