NATIONAL HOMEBREW DAY – First Saturday in May

NATIONAL HOMEBREW DAY – First Saturday in May
(Last Updated On: February 3, 2023)


The first Saturday in May recognizes National Homebrew Day. Every year the American Homebrewers Association holds the Big Brew to celebrate the practice of homebrewing by bringing homebrewers together to make the same official recipes for side by side competition.

There are different breeds of homebrewers. Those who hold to time-honored traditions and those who push the edge of flavor and experimentation. Both express their personality with barley, hops, and yeast and a little something else.

Homebrewers dabble in a variety of styles. Where you enjoy lagers, ales, ciders, or a mead, there’s a category for you. Discover your favorite homebrew and join the competition!

And, whatever your personal flair – honey, and ginger or hoppy and dark – if you are a homebrewer, this celebration is for you.
