Cost: FREE ADMISSION
Big Brew Day is May 4th this year. Created to celebrate National Homebrew Day and the joy of brewing the Homebrew Emporium stores again will host Big Brew Day at their Rensselaer, NY, and West Boylston and Weymouth, MA stores. For the past 3 years we have given all the ingredients away for free to brewers who come and brew in front of our store that day. Last year we had approximately 150 batches brewed between all three locations. That's 750 gallons or almost 25 barrels. Along with all the other people that brewers brought we had several hundred people brewing as well as learning the process.
This year we will again offer the ingredients for free, but will ask for a minimum donation of a non perishable food item and $10 per brewer. Food and money collected will be donated to The Regional Food Bank of Northeastern NY or the Greater Boston Food Bank. Besides the money we are also doing a can drive at all four stores to bring in food as well from April 15th to May 5th. Throughout the day we will also raffle off prizes from local establishments and vendors to help raise money to help support those who need a hand.
