The 2018 Basing Brewer's Big Brew was a blast! There were plenty of hiccups as there always is, but a fellow brewer was always close by to help. This is a great event every year and a perfect introduction to brewing for someone looking to get into the hobby. See you guys on the first Saturday in May, 2019! Huge thanks to James for hosting, and thank you for this awesome video of the day!

In 1988, May 7 was announced before Congress as National Homebrew Day. The American Homebrewers Association (AHA) created AHA Big Brew as an annual event to celebrate National Homebrew Day around the world. AHA Big Brew is held each year on the first Saturday in May.
Please join us on May 5th, 2018 for the Basin Brewers' Big Brew! Thank you to James Rhoades for volunteering his massive backyard for the event! If you can bring a canopy or chairs, please do so. We plan to start around 10am, and the toast is at noon as usual. We hope to see you all there!
This year's Big Brew recipe's were handpicked by Charlie Papazian himself:
- Rocky Raccoon’s Honey Lager
- Dusty Mud Irish-style Stout

Thank you to everyone who came out to drink beer and consume mass quantities of meat with us! We also snuck in some grilled donuts and some crawfish. A big thank you to Jorge for the crawfish and the boiler and to Jaime for the venue. We look forward to seeing everyone at the April roundtable, cheers

Also: Be sure to check out our updated Permian Basin Beer Scene page. I am trying to keep current a few custom place lists on Google Maps so that beer fans that are new to the area know where to shop!

Congrats to our Secondary Fermenter, Aaron for winning the homebrew competition with his wood aged old ale, it was damn tasty! Thank you to all the brewers who entered a beer, we really enjoyed tasting them!
And finally, thank you to everyone who came out and made the 2017 Lobster Boil a success! There were some familiar faces, and quite a few new ones. We look forward to seeing you all next year!
