Event description

Description

We are celebrating National Home Brewers' Day in style by inviting all home brewers (or just 12 of you) into the brewhouse to brew a batch of beer together!

We will also be selling (almost giving away) fresh wort for $5/5 gallons brewed by our headbrewmaster, Matt Hall.

This is just 5 weeks out from the 2017 Pro-Am Beer Competition, so be sure to be talking with your home brew groups to make sure you're in the know on how to potentially enter!

The official beer this year suggested by the American Homebrewers Association is TBD

Lift Bridge Brewing Co will hold its second annual Big Brew Day on May 6, 2017 from 12-6pm!

Each year, the American Homebrewing promotes “Big Brew Day” to try to get everyone around the world to brew beer at the same time! Last year over 17,000 individuals attended an event! Come and learn about Homebrewing!

  • Matt Hall, Head Brewer, will make a batch of wort to celebrate “Big Brew Day” and individuals registered on EventBrite will be able to take wort home to ferment (details to follow).

  • 12 EventBrite registered Homebrewers will be able to set up their equipment and brew inside the brewery or outside in a designated area.

  • Public Tours of the facility will be held at 1, 3 and 5pm.

  • There will be two educational brew talks scheduled for 2pm and 4pm.

  • Members from local Homebrew Clubs will be onsite to answer questions about memberships.
