Due to the fact that the Brewers Association / AHA has scheduled their Annual Craft Brewers Conference for the same weekend as their National Homebrew Day, the brewing staff at Rochester Mills will be in San Diego on May 5th... Since we would like to continue the tradition of hosting a "big brew day" at the brewery, we have decided to give everyone the opportunity to bring their brew systems to our new Production Facility in Auburn Hills and brew in the parking lot on Saturday, April 28th - one week early. We hope that this opportunity will attract several more Homebrewers who usually can't join us on Homebrew Day because their club is already brewing together, and we also hope that it allows many of you Brew Tribe members to go visit and/or participate in other clubs' Homebrew Day activities on May 5th. Please see the information below for details. And keep in mind that since we will be weighing and grinding all this malt at the brewpub, there will not be a chance to submit a last minute list of ingredients after April 24th. This deadline is NOT flexible.
