Saturday, May 6th we celebrate the American Homebrewers Association’s annual Big Brew for National Homebrew Day. Many of us will gather and brew individually at Lift Bridge Brewing beginning at 11:00; any recipe is welcome, but please consider brewing one of the two suggested recipes found on the AHA site. Brewing will be outside, except for those who were the first twelve to sign up.
Homebrew is welcome, and Lift Bridge will have mash/sparge water available, as well as hoses for chillers. Please remember to purchase much of Lift Bridge’s delicious wares! At 4:00, Lift Bridge will be distributing an Oktoberfest wort to those that register and purchase ahead of time. Details are on Lift Bridge’s event page.
If you can’t make it to Lift Bridge, then please consider hosting a brewing open house on May 6th. Let us know that you’re doing so, and we can spread the word to club members; this is a great opportunity to meet other members, see other brewers’ set-ups, share techniques, and to participate in the national simultaneous noon toast. Please let us know your name and address, what time you are opening the doors, what people can bring, and whether they should bring a brewing set-up.
Let’s make this a day where club members are in personal contact with other members, regardless of location!
