May 3rd – National Homebrew Day

 This Saturday, May 3rd is National Homebrew Day. It’s a day for homebrewers to celebrate by getting together at their favorite homebrew store, brewery or at someone’s house  and brew a batch of beer. Last year Sarah and I went to Fort Street Brewery and Adventures in Homebrewing. Both places were a lot of fun.

This year Doug Beedy of Fort Street is brewing a small batch of beer at the brewery. Doug is a great guy and very informative. Since he is using his small system you can learn a lot about homebrewing from him. They open at noon on Saturday.

Adventures in Homebrewing will be having a homebrew demonstration between 10am – 5pm. As, I mentioned earlier I went to this last year and it was terrific fun. You can learn a lot from the demonstration.  If you are thinking of taking up homebrewing I highly recommend going to Adventures in Homebrewing on Saturday.

What are your plans for National Homebrew Day?

  1. This year we’ll be hanging out (brewing) at Rich and Lisa’s house in Dearborn. It’s just a short drive to Adventures store. I’m planning to stop by there to see what kind of turn out Jason gets…

  2. I have an update for anyone interested in National Homebrew Day. I talked to Eric Briggeman from Rochester Mills Brewing Co. He told me, if you bring your equipment up to brew at RMBC that they will supply the malt and hops. If you decide to do so please call tonight and let them know. Any level of brewer will be welcomed.
