Competition Announcement: The Mills Big Brew – Saturday, April 29, 2017

El Hefe sez: Just received this via email –

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 and we will be accepting 125 entries.
