Recognition of National Homebrew Day 

Charleston, SC (May 6th)—Beer Engineer Supply will host a homebrewing event on May 6 in honor of AHA Big Brew. The American Homebrewers Association (AHA) created AHA Big Brew as an annual, worldwide celebration of National Homebrew Day. AHA Big Brew is held each year on the first Saturday in May and unites homebrewers from around the world to gather around the brew kettle and indulge in the same beer recipes.

At noon Central time, thousands of homebrewers and beer lovers all around the world will raise their glasses for a toast to homebrewing and the homebrewers that craft outstanding homemade beer, mead and wine. This year’s official recipes—which were selected by the AHA to celebrate the upcoming release of the fourth edition of How to Brew by John Palmer—are Rushmore American IPA, Battre L’oie Saison and Klang Freudenfest Oktoberfest Lager, all of which are featured in the book.

Full recipe details and directions can be found on the AHA website.

Charleston’s homebrew club, Lowcountry Libations (LCL), will be brewing these recipes on site at Beer Engineer Supply from 11-5, demonstrating brewing practices, and answering beer questions. LCL will also be sampling homebrews and grilling brats. If you are interested in homebrewing, please join!

Beer Engineer Supply is happy to invite anyone interested in homebrewing to stop by during business hours from 10 to 6 on Saturday, May 6, 2017 to join the fun!

“AHA Big Brew is an exciting day for homebrewers, bringing together brewers and beer lovers from all walks of life, all over the country and even all over the world,” said Gary Glass, director, American Homebrewers Association. “We’d encourage anyone with an interest or passion for beer to mark May 6 on their calendar and check out their local Big Brew site the day of. Big Brew is a deeply gratifying, community-driven event—and each year it’s a thrill to experience it, sharing the joy of homebrewing.”
