Big Brew Day with the SOBs

Festivities held worldwide on May 4 in recognition of National Homebrew Day

The Society of Oshkosh Brewers will host Big Brew Day, the American Homebrewers Association’s worldwide celebration of National Homebrew Day, on Saturday, May 4. Big Brew Day 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 art and science of homebrewing.

At noon, 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, wine, mead and cider.

“For brewers and beer lovers, AHA Big Brew—which is celebrated all over the country and around the world—is one of the most exciting and gratifying days of the year,” said Gary Glass, director, American Homebrewers Association. “Big Brew is a truly unifying event, bringing people together from all kinds of backgrounds and walks of life. On May 4th, we encourage beer lovers everywhere to visit their local Big Brew site to experience—and share—the hobby of homebrewing with their neighbors.”

The Society of Oshkosh Brewers is happy to invite anyone interested in homebrewing to stop out behind The Cellar Homebrew Shop, 465 N. Washburn Street in Oshkosh, between 9:00 A.M. and 4:00 P.M. on May 4 to join in the fun.

Beverages and a food truck from DD’s BBQ will be available on-site.
