2017 Mills Big Brew (& Michigan Homebrew Competition) at Production Brewery

April 29, 2017

| Free

Attention Homebrewers,

We’ll be holding the Mills Big Brew a week before the AHA Big Brew Day, as we have been doing for the last 5 years.  This will allow homebrewers to join us for “The World’s Largest Big Brew”, and then be able to brew with their own club on May 6th. The Mills Big Brew will be held at the Rochester Mills Production Brewery in Auburn Hills on April 29, 2017.
There is NO COST for this event but we will only be accepting 125 entries.

On June 3rd, Noon-3pm, we will invite everyone back to the brewery for a people’s choice competition of the beers brewed during the Big Brew.

Our sponsors have donated five (5) malts and seven (7) hops available for you to use on Big Brew Day (you can also bring your own ingredients). Malt is being donated by Cargill Malts (Pilsner) and Rochester Mills (Vienna, Wheat, Crystal 70-80L, Aromatic). Hops are being donated by Hopsteiner (Eureka, Calypso, Denali, Experimental #07270) and Top Hops Farms (Cascade, Chinook, Tahoma).

Hope to see you on April 29th!
