Capitol City Brewing Supply will host a Big Brew Day on May 5 in honor of AHA Big Brew. The American Homebrewers Association (AHA) created AHA Big Brew as an annual, worldwide celebration of National Homebrew Day. AHA Big Brew is held each year on the first Saturday in May and unites homebrewers from around the world to gather around the brew kettle and indulge in the same beer recipes.
At noon Central time, thousands of homebrewers and beer lovers around the world will raise their glasses for a toast to homebrewing and the homebrewers that craft outstanding homemade beer, mead and wine. AHA founder Charlie Papazian selected this year’s official recipes, Rocky Raccoon’s Honey Lager and Dusty Mud Irish Stout. These recipes are in celebration of the 40th anniversary of the AHA and were among the first recipes published by Papazian.
