National Homebrew Day was announced before Congress on May 7th, 1988. Big Brew was created by the American Homebrewers Association (AHA) to celebrate National Homebrew Day around the world. Big Brew Day is celebrated on the first Saturday in May.

- Rushmore American IPA – All Grain, Extract
- Battre L’oie Saison – All Grain, Extract
