Brewing Big for National Homebrew Day

Today, the brewing of beer has evolved into a wonderful hobby that many beer lovers are now taking part in. National Homebrew Day is the perfect chance to get involved in the hobby and it always falls on the last Saturday of May. It is a day that brings together homebrewers from all over the world in a show of unity and passion.

But before National Homebrew Day arrives, there is The Big Brew. This event is held on the first Saturday of May as a pre-celebration of National Homebrew Day and of homebrewing around the world. So, let's take a look at what The Big Brew is, what activities you can take part in and how to get involved this year.

What is The Big Brew?

The Big Brew is an event that was founded in 1999 by the American Homebrewers Association, the organisation that also founded National Homebrew Day. It is a day of worldwide celebration for homebrewers and beer lovers alike, where people from all over the world come together to brew and socialise over a shared love of beer.
