The American Homebrewers Association Releases Collection of Free Craft Beer Recipes

Homebrewers are a unique bunch. They value the spirit of independence, integrity and resolve of those who make the jump from fellow amateurs to craft brewing professionals. Because of that admiration, home brewers are often as fiercely loyal to the drafts being poured at their neighborhood brewery as to their own personal garage-based brews.

To further inspire those who toil to make their own beer, the American Homebrewers Association has compiled a new online resource that includes homebrewer-friendly, scaled-down versions of some of the most popular beers in the country. The Commercial Beer Clone Recipes Guide includes one iconic beer from each of the fifty states. With a comprehensive list like this, there’s bound to be something for each of the 1.2 million Americans who brew their own batches of beer.

Highlights in the collection include the fiercely sought after Russian River creation Pliny the Elder, a beer representing California that frequently tops lists as the best beer in the country. Another standout is Michigan-based Bell’s Two Hearted Ale, a beer beloved by hop worshipers from coast to coast. But it’s not all India Pale Ales in the recipe guide. Dogfish Head Craft Brewed Ales represents Delaware with its Belgian-Style Brown Ale Raison D’Etre. Massachusetts’ Spencer Brewery shares the secrets of its Trappist Ale and Ohio’s Great Lakes Brewing Co. pulls back the curtain on its delicious Edmund Fitzgerald Porter.

Whether you grow your own hops or are still brewing with Mr. Beer, the Commercial Beer Clone Recipes Guide is a priceless resource. The convenient online directory shares the ingredients and the processes from some of the top brewing minds in the country. It doesn’t matter if you’re a home brewing newbie or a seasoned veteran, this guide contains fifty excellent ways to be inspired and is waiting for you to brew, drink and experience.
