Where the World Gathers to Celebrate Every Day

NATIONAL HOMEBREW DAY – First Saturday in May

NATIONAL HOMEBREW DAY – First Saturday in May


The first Saturday in May is National Homebrew Day. Every year the American Homebrewers Association holds the Big Brew to celebrate National Homebrew Day 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.

Whatever your personal flair, honey and ginger or hoppy and dark, if you are a homebrewer National Homebrew Day is for you.

For more information, you can visit the American Homebrews Association website.


Brew up your favorite homebrew or celebrate with other homebrewers. Use #NationalHomebrewDay to post on social media.


In 1988, the American Homebrewers Association presented before Congress National Homebrew Day to be observed the first Saturday in May.

There are over 1,500 national days. Don’t miss a single one. Celebrate Every Day® with National Day Calendar®!
