This year’s official Big Brew recipes— Rushmore American IPA, Battre L’oie Saison and Klang Freudenfest Oktoberfest Lager—celebrate the upcoming release of the fourth edition of How to Brewby John Palmer, which is one of the all-time best and most beloved homebrewing guides. At noon CDT, all homebrewers and beer lovers are encouraged to raise their glass in a simultaneous toast to the hobby, which is enjoyed by of thousands all over the world.

WHY: There over 1.2 million homebrewers in the United States. With one in every 200 adults in the U.S. now crafting their own beer, homebrewing has become one of the country’s fastest growing hobbies. AHA Big Brew is a toast to the nation’s homebrewers and their shared love and appreciation for homebrewed beer, mead and cider. In 2016, over 12,000 people celebrated the event at 483 registered sites. Additionally, 2,363 batches created 17,804 gallons of homebrew enjoyed worldwide. Last year, 48 U.S. states and 12 countries participated. In 1988, May 7 was announced before Congress as National Homebrew Day, and so the AHA created AHA Big Brew, held each year on the first Saturday in May, to celebrate National Homebrew Day across the U.S. and globe.
