SATURDAY, MAY 6th at 1:00pm

May 7, 1988 was announced before Congress as National Homebrew Day. The American Homebrewers Association (AHA) created the AHA Big Brew as an annual event to celebrate National Homebrew Day around the world which is held each year on the first Saturday in May.  This celebration unites homebrewers from around the world to gather around the brew kettle and indulge in brewing together.

To celebrate National Homebrew Day, The Brewer's Apprentice kettle system will be reserved for small batch brewing!!

We have selected 6 recipes representing a wide variety of styles and flavors (see listing below).  Each recipe will produce 15 gallons of beer which will be divided into 3 shares, each yielding 48 - 12 oz bottles.  The cost to participate is $100.00 per share.

This is a great opportunity to meet other brewers, share a home brew, learn about the hobby, no experience is necessary, and best of all we do all the clean up! Relax have a homebrew!

Please note due to the potential for 18 brewers on the "brew line", participation in this offer is limited to one person per share. This event may only be purchased from our website. Bottling date will be May 26th or any date after and should be scheduled individually.

The Brewer's Apprentice will be serving complimentary beverages and Brew Dogs!!

Home brewer's are encouraged to bring your best for sharing or your worst for trouble shooting.



  • Brewer's ESB Extra Special Bitter Ale

    • Modeled after Fuller’s popular ESB, this beer has a good hop and malt character. This style of beer is popular in pubs all over the U.K.

  • Lemon Drop Wheat

    • If you love wheat beer with a lemon slice, this new recipe is a must try. Designed by Jim Kiss, it showcases Lemon Drop hop exclusivley. A classic wheat beer with lemon citrus notes coming exclusively from the Lemon Drop hop. Delicious!

  • Reindolf Kolsch Ale

    • Many American beer lovers are not yet familiar with Kolsch style ales, which is a shame … a Kolsch style beer is the lightest of the ales, yet it’s wonderfully complex.  This is smooth and easy drinking ale, perfect for a hot summer afternoon!!

  • Hop Juice Pale Ale

    • This is one of the newer, more popular breeds of pale ale and accentuates the bright fruitiness of the hops. There is a unique "very hoppy but not too bitter" aspect that comes from most hop additions being added late in the boil.  This citrusy bold pale ale is sure to please hop heads and casual drinkers alike.

  • Manchester Honey Lager

    • If you’re looking to take a step up from lighter lagers and expand your horizons, but don’t want to stray too far, here’s the beer for you. This brew is smooth, malty, with moderate alcohol and very little hop “presence”.

    • Zombie Brew
      • We’ve created our own clone of Rogue’s infamous Dead Guy Ale.  A Mai bock that's malty and rich, with just a hint of creaminess.  The perfect recipe for summoning up the living dead!
