Title: Big Brew Day 2013
Post by: thatgeekguy on April 19, 2013, 05:35:23 PM
This will be the first year that I (and my local LHBS) are participating in the AHA Big Brew Day. The AHA home page currently has a splash story on the More Fun Blonde Ale being 'one of the recipes for this year's BBD', are there other recipes coming as well? I had heard that BBD is focused around a single recipe rather than multiple ones.

There are actually 3 recipes:

But some of us are brewing others as well.

I'm hosting like I have for years, but it's gonna be a pretty small event.  The biggest brewfest around always gets scheduled for the same day and a lot of people do that instead.

Our LHBS hosts a big event every year: group brew, homebrew garage sale, seminars and classes, food trucks, pints by the neighboring nanobrewery, etc.

Can't wait!

I went out out there one year. We seemed to drive and drive forever. Finally we arrived at this quaint little ranch with a nice brewshed where I saw the coolest garden gnome I'd ever laid eyes on......then it moved and I realized it was Denny.

My wife and I drove up from California to visit Big Brew 2005 at Denny's.  The whole experience with the group of brewers that were there that day as well as the whole charm of the Eugene area sold us that that is where we wanted to call home.  By October of that year we had backed up our bags and moved to that area.  The people that we met that day and the days following that are now our lifetime friends.

Sorry I did not make it out there this year.  With the nice weather we have been having, things in the vineyard have really taking off.  I was thinking of you though.

Cheers.
