Tomorrow is National Homebrew Day

The first Saturday in May is National Homebrew Day, as decreed in 1998 by the American Homebrewers Association. And what do homebrewers do on the first Saturday in May?

Big Brew!

At noon Mountain time, homebrewers the world over fire up their kettles to simultaneously brew (mostly) the same recipe. The original big brew was an attempt to gain entry into the Guinness Book of World Records, but, strangely for a publication named after one of the most popular beers going, the attempt was rejected. Official glory denied, the fun goes on. Our homebrew club, the DBG, gathers at our friend Tom's house every year. If the size of a brewer's kettle is the measure of studliness, Tom is the homebrewer equivalent of John Holmes, with a 30 gallon kettle. Where will you spend the first Saturday in May?
