On Saturday the Memphis Brewers Association and High Cotton Brewing will host “Learn to Homebrew Day,” giving aspiring brewers an opportunity to get an inside look at the brewing process from start to finish.

The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held at High Cotton, 598 Monroe Ave., starting at 11 a.m.

The American Homebrewers Association founded “Learn to Homebrew Day” in 1999 to introduce people to the hobby of homebrewing and to promote relationships with local homebrew shops. The event has since been held annually each November.
