Some info on National Homebrew Day from the AHA website:
In 1988, May 7 was announced before Congress as National Homebrew Day. The American Homebrewers Association (AHA) created AHA Big Brew as an annual event to celebrate National Homebrew Day around the world. AHA Big Brew is held each year on the first Saturday in May.
Anyone, even homebrew shops, can host and register 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!
There are a lot of events planned around the country to introduce people to homebrewing. If you’d like to see what this hobby is all about check here to see what events are in your area. We’ll be celebrating here at MHB by brewing up a session rye IPA. The recipe for this is a collaboration with several of our friends and we are all going to brew it then share the beer with each other to see the differences. We’re located in GA, OH, FL and TX so it will be interesting to see the differences we get from our different equipment, processes and water profiles.
Stay tuned and we’ll post a recap of brew day with some more info on the beer.
