AHA Virtual Big Beer Homebrew Event May 2nd, 2020

Several Worthogs brewed in celebration of Big Beer Day, an American Homebrewers Association event held each May. Members made 35 gallons of beer and 5 gallons of melomel (fruit mead). This year we made the decision to brew individually - no group gathering- so we were part of a virtual brew day.
