Yo homebrewers! Celebrate National Homebrew Day at the Philadelphia Homebrew Club’s Sausage Fest (But Girls Can Come Too!) big brew day.  We will be grilling and smoking some of Philadelphia’s finest links, provided by Czerw’s Kielbasa of Port Richmond, Maglio Sausage Co. of South Philly, and of course the Philly Homebrew Club’s own homemade tubular meats.  And if you’re still hungry after all that, food trucks and vendors will be cruising up and down American Street.

This family friendly party will be bursting with games, activities and live music.  Feel free to drag the kids along ‘cuz we’ll have face painting, a bouncy castle, balloon animals, and plenty more to keep them busy.  Homemade lemonade and iced-tea will also be available.

But let’s be honest, we know it’s all about the beer.  That’s why Yards Brewing Co. and the Philadelphia Homebrew Club will be providing unlimited, generous tastings of the freshest handcrafted ales you can find. And in honor of National Homebrew Day, homebrewers will be demonstrating how to brew a Lambic and Imperial India Pale Ale.

If you want to brew the Lambic or Imperial India Pale Ale please use the proper link to sign up. Only 10 spots each and both are expected to sell out and is based on first come first serve. All brewers are expected to bring there own brewing set up. Water and cooling station will be provided. Share price of $75 will cover entry and ingredients.

But what homebrew party is complete without a little friendly competition?  The Spring Ale competition will consist of Weizens/Weissbiers, Witbiers, and Saisons, so get those game faces on and get brewing!  The winner from each category will be announced during the festivities.
