If you didn’t know May 5th this year is National Homebrew Day, also known as Big Brew. It is actually a holiday recognized by congress, despite some states still being a little anti-homebrewing. Many clubs and breweries organize brewing demonstrations with the nationally chosen recipes. There is also a simultaneous toast at noon Central Time, though I think we missed the timing last year with all the brewing going on.

There’s some more info at a half-assed attempt at a site for my club. I need to put some more time into it. Here’s some photos from last year’s event:
