Thank all of you for participating in AHA Big Brew 2011! You are the people that make this event special and allow new brewers to see how much fun it is to be a part of the homebrewing community. Thank you for sharing your experiences and good luck brewing in the future. We got an amazing turn out across the country with over 290 sites, 1030 batches (7,941 gallons!) and over 3,750 participants reported so far.

This year there was a great collection of videos to choose from. There were videos with personalized mash paddles, all sorts of great, unique gadgets and systems, and of course plenty of brewing. The most important thing however is that AHA Big Brew is an event which brings homebrewers of all different skill levels and backgrounds together. As always, we encourage and support the growth of AHA homebrew clubs and the development of talented homebrewers alike.

And the winners are....

AHA Big Brew: A Celebration of National Homebrew Day was created to bring homebrewers together around the world. This year the AHA will again sponsor a video contest for the event. Please record a video of your AHA Big Brew site, showing what you’re brewing, who you’re brewing with and of course, all the fun you’re having!

The AHA will awarded  two prize packages, one for the most watched video and one for the video that best captures the essence and teamwork of AHA Big Brew. Links to the winning AHA Big Brew 2010 videos will be posted to the AHA Big Brew homepage, on our Video section of www.HomebrewersAssociation.org and announced on the AHA Forum on May 24, 2010.

Contest Rules
Submitted videos must be 3 minutes or less in length to qualify for the contest. Contestants have until Monday, May 10, 2010 to upload their AHA Big Brew 2010 videos to www.YouTube.com. All titles should begin with "AHA Big Brew 2010" to ensure that they can be easily searched. Adding tag lines like "beer," "homebrew," and "homebrewing" will also help search functions. AHA Big Brew 2010 videos are judged by the AHA Governing Committee. Winners are determined at the sole discretion of the AHA Governing Committee.
