WHAT: Homebrewers worldwide will join the American Homebrewers Association (AHA) for the 23rd annual Big Brew celebration on May 2, 2020. Held annually on the first Saturday of May, Big Brew for National Homebrew Day is the largest annual gathering of homebrewers. This year the event will be held virtually for the first time — united in beer, yet socially distancing!

The official Big Brew recipe is Pangea Proxima Polar IPA from Jackalope Brewing Co. in Nashville, Tenn. Recipes and brewing instructions can be found online. New to the hobby? Now is a great time to try homebrewing. Check out the Easy Guide to Making Beer video at that link or above.
