Thousands to Participate in Worldwide, Simultaneous Toast as American Homebrewers Association Celebrates 40th Anniversary
In honor of National Homebrew Day (which falls every year on May 7), the American Homebrewers Association (AHA) celebrates AHA Big Brew on the first Saturday in May. Throughout the day on May 5, hundreds of bars, breweries, shops and homebrew clubs nationwide will host their local communities to brew on-site for a national, same-day homebrewing session. At noon CDT, all homebrewers and beer lovers are encouraged to raise their glass in a worldwide, simultaneous toast. Brewers from all around our region will be brewing alongside each other right out front of Philly Homebrew Outlet East in Kensington at 1447 N. American St. Philadelphia, PA 19122.
Everyone is welcome! Come out and brew, smell, learn, taste and drink with us! Best part is… IT’S FREE!!!
There over 1.1 million homebrewers in the United States, 40 percent of which started homebrewing only within the last four years. 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.
The Philadelphia Homebrew Club will be there in force this year and we will be brewing and BBQing up a storm! Libations are generously being donated by Original 13 Ciderworks, Neshaminy Creek Brewing Co., New Liberty Distillery, and Evil Genius will be on hand making sure everyone has a cold one to drink!
