Celebrate the 25th annual Big Brew on May 7, 2022

Held on the first Saturday in May, Big Brew for National Homebrew Day is an opportunity to fire up the kettle and raise a glass to the greatest hobby there is— homebrewing!

Continue to support homebrewing when you join the American Homebrewers Association.

In 1988, May 7, was announced before Congress as National Homebrew Day. The American Homebrewers Association created Big Brew as an annual event to celebrate National Homebrew Day around the world.
