I haven't joined... yet. It is one of those things that I have meant to do but haven't yet.

Though I won't say the subscription to Zymurgy alone is worth it, I wanna support a group that tries to keep Homebrewing legal and legalize it in the places it isn't yet. Unfortunately here in Massachusetts it is illegal to discount alcohol but in other states you can get discounts at brew pubs.

I'm an AHA member. It's money well spent as they are our only defense against restrictive home brewing laws. The organization is not perfect. None are, but without them we are adrift and defenseless for the most part. There are some who would like to prohibit home brewing or find a way to tax the hell out of it. Eventually, these forces would likely cause problems for us. There are other AHA benefits such as the Zymurgy magazine and the national competition.

just joined recently so I can't vouch for its value -- but it did allow me to enter into the national competitions...

I'm a member of the AHA, my local club (NTHA), this forum and the BN Army. All of them are worth every penny they cost, because without these resources, I wouldn't be near the brewer that I am today, and I think that's worth it.

Fermenting: Nada
On Tap:Cran Wit, Dr Pepper Dubbel, Cascadian Pale Ale, Dark Chocolate Stout, Imperial Stout, Brown Mild, Schwarzbier
On Board: IIPA

I definitely think it's worth every penny. I just renewed my membership the other day.
