National Homebrew Day
Saturday, May 4, 2013, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM
Atlanta area home brewers will gather in Decatur, Georgia to celebrate National Homebrew Day on May 4, 2013. The local event will be part of American Homebrew Association’s (AHA) “Big Brew”, an annual observance of the day, now in its 16th year.
AHA Big Brew brings together thousands of home-brewers from around the world. More than 5,000 home brewers from North America, Europe, Africa, Asia, South America and Australia are expected to participate this year.
Local host of the Decatur event is Wine Workshop and Brew Center (WWBC), the Atlanta area’s newest home brew supply shop. WWBC is happy to invite anyone interested in home brewing to stop by from 9:00am to 5:00pm on Saturday, May 4, 2013 to join the fun! The event is free.
Atlanta’s growing community of avid home brewers have responded enthusiastically to the opportunity to participate in a local Big Brew, according to WWBC President, Marcia Langford Perez. “We’re expecting six area home-brew clubs and several individual home brewers to participate,” said Perez.
Decatur’s Big Brew will be held at East Decatur Station’s west parking lot located at 627 East College Avenue, Decatur, GA 30030. For more information call 404-228-5211 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
On May 4, friends and family gather to brew one of their favorite recipes. At 1:00pm Eastern time, home brewers raise their glasses of homebrewed ales and lagers for a simultaneous toast to home brewing, a hobby that hundreds of thousands of people around the world enjoy.
“AHA Big Brew isn’t just about beer—it’s about companionship, friendship and the shared love of flavorful beer. This is a special day for those home brewers who have been crafting their brews for those whose company they enjoy and cherish,” said Gary Glass, AHA Director.
“Home brewers are a huge part of the craft beer movement. They support local breweries and appreciate our craft on another level, because they actually understand the complexity and hard work that goes into brewing on a bigger scale. Many home brewers are also pushing the envelope with new innovative flavor combinations and style concepts, and some have even inspired professional brewers to think more outside-the-box in their approach to recipe development.,” said Chase Medlin, Head Brewer at Twain’s Billiards and Tap.
