On May 1, join in the 24th Annual Big Brew for National Homebrew Day


In 1988, May 7 was announced before Congress as National Homebrew Day. The American Homebrewers Association (AHA) created Big Brew as an annual event occurring on the first Saturday in May, to celebrate the best hobby there is – homebrewing. This year, on May 1, homebrewers, craft beer fans, and DIYers are invited to make beer and participate in the worldwide celebration.

Take the Big Brew Pledge and be counted in this year’s record-breaking event. Now through May 9, take $5 off the purchase of an AHA membership with the code BigBrew21.

The official Big Brew recipes for this year are the National Homebrew Competition (NHC) award-winning Janet’s American Brown Ale and the tropical and juicy Star Gazer IPA. Each recipe can be found online and features techniques for beginners and experienced brewers. New to homebrewing or need a refresher? Get started with these helpful tips and videos.

Order brewing ingredients from a local homebrew supply shop using the AHA directory of homebrew shops.
