I was browsing around the AHA page at beertown.org and just noticed this:

AHA Big Brew 2009 Membership Offer
Join the AHA and get a free book! To celebrate National Homebrew Day /AHA Big Brew 2009, the AHA is offering a free copy of Brewing Classic Styles,by Jamil Zainasheff and John Palmer. To receive your free book with any AHA membership, visit our online store, purchase any AHA membership, use the code "09bigbrew", and the book will automatically be added to your basket. Shipping is free for US addresses. This offer ends at Midnight, EST May 31, 2009.
Sounds like a great deal and should push you over if you were on the fence about joing AHA.

Oh good. I thought this had to be on Big Brew Day, and I was too busy at the tasting at my LHBS to remember. Thanks for the reminder!

Edit: Oh man, I thought it was for How to Brew, which would have been nice but not extremely necessary at this stage in my brewing 'career.' Brewing Classic Styles, though, that's a damn deal.

I was settled on letting my membreship lapse prior to this notice. I don't have the BCS book in my library. This gave me the incentive. New book and continued subsciption to Zymurgy.

Thanks for the heads up.

Kinda bummed I won't get any of the benefits for 2-3 weeks. I was planning on picking up ingredients this week from Brew & Grow that gives a 10% discount. I can't seem to log into the website yet either.

I signed up 2 weeks ago, got the email with my membership numbers 2 days later, and the book last week.

Still haven't recevied the membership package yet though.

What's even better is that your AHA membership will be pretty much free if you have a pub, brewery or restaurant that participates in the discount program nearby (or Midwest Homebrew supplies, they offer 5% off if you e-mail them a copy of your membership card) - you'll save more money than the membership cost in the first place.

Every homebrewer should be a member - there's just no reason not to be :).

Yeah, sadly the closest pub that offers a discount is Ellicottville, which is an hour or so away, but I do enough traveling... plus Zymurgy, etc, and a membership card. I love those.

It was the tipping point for me too. I joined up everyone on a Family. When Adam is a teenager he can tell people he has been a member since Age 3. Heh heh heh.

The book, and my desire to attend the members-only session at GABF, finally pushed me over the edge.

aaaand, my membership confirmation and book arrived yesterday. It helps that I'm in Denver, and the AHA is in Boulder, I guess. At any rate, it looks like there's almost no lag in turning the orders around.
