National Homebrew Day was designated by Congress May 7th in 1988. The American Homebrewers Association (AHA) created the Annual Big Brew event to celebrate National Homebrew Day around the world. Big Brew happens each year on the first Saturday in May. Anyone can host a Big Brew event, so invite your family and friends, and join in the global celebration.
Don’t miss the simultaneous toast at 1:00 p.m. ET, 12:00 p.m. CT on May 4, 2019!
