We will be holding the Mills Big Brew a week before the AHA Big Brew Day, as we have been doing since 2012. 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 5th. The Mills Big Brew will be held at the Rochester Mills Production Brewery in Auburn Hills on April 28, 2018. There is no cost for this event and we will be accepting 125 entries.
