In 1988, May 7 was announced before Congress as National Homebrew Day. The American Homebrewers Association (AHA) created Big Brew as an annual event to celebrate National Homebrew Day around the world. Big Brew is held each year on the first Saturday in May.
Anyone can host a Big Brew event, so invite your friends and family, gather around the brew kettle and join in the global celebration of the greatest hobby there is—homebrewing!
We will be doing a simultaneous toast with others around the word at noon!
Join the celebration and attend this event. Members of MEGA will be on hand to answer any questions you may have regarding the hobby of homebrewing and also doing brewing demonstrations.
