A cool and blustery day descended upon dozens of homebrewing teams as they huddled around steaming mash tuns while concocting the ‘Beer City Brown’ at Calder Plaza Saturday, May 3rd. The event is called Big Brew Day and was started by the American Homebrewers Association (AHA) after May 7th was announced before congress as being National Homebrew day in 1988.The AHA then took it upon themselves to start an annual Big Brew Day on every first Saturday of May. For the sec ond year in a row, Grand Rapids participated in this event.Just as they did the previous year, Siciliano’s stepped up to sponsor the Grand Rapids Big Brew Day. Siciliano’s donated the ingredients and provided the recipe needed to create 48 all grain batches, as well as offered bottled water for brewing, a wort chilling station that cooled up to six kettles at a time, and platform carts so brewers could move their equipment across the plaza safely and quickly.
