DC Homebrewer’s will host a Big Brew Day on May 2 via Zoom, as homebrewers across the globe join the world’s largest virtual homebrew in honor of Big Brew. The American Homebrewers Association created Big Brew as a worldwide celebration of National Homebrew Day. Held annually on the first Saturday of May, the largest annual gathering of homebrewers will be held virtually for the first time ever this year given current social distancing recommendations.
The DC Homebrew (DCHB) club are going to have multiple demonstrations of brewing techniques and beer styles with ongoing Q&A and special guests. The event will be hosted by our very own Mike Stein and Michael Tonsmeire of the Mad Fermentationist blog and head brewer at Sapwood Cellars.
Whether you want to learn how to brew, have been brewing for 20 years, or are just looking for something to do on a Saturday afternoon while drinking a beer, they’ll have a little bit of something for everyone.
Homebrewers can access resources on the American Homebrewers Association website including how to best support your local homebrew shop and a directory of homebrew shops that are offering alternate purchasing options during this time. For us, that’s My Little Homebrew Shop in Virginia and Maryland Homebrew.
The DC Homebrewers invites all those interested in homebrewing to virtually participate by registering on Zoom and joining on Saturday, May 2, 2020 at 3pm. All participating homebrewers are encouraged to be counted in this year’s record-breaking event by taking the pledge at HomebrewersAssociation.org/BigBrew. Homebrewers around the world can join the conversation using #BigBrew and tagging @HomebrewAssoc.
