What is Big Brew Day you ask? Big Brew Day is an AHA sponsored event where homebrewers share their passion about the craft with others. Brewers bring their equipment to the event, and brew a batch (or two) of beer during the day. They share ideas, stories, beer and have a great time!

Oregon Brew Crew  is teaming up with F.H. Steinbart, Imperial Yeast and Cross Roads Canning for this years Big Brew Day. We are planning lots of great stuff this year! Whether you plan to brew during the day, or just want to learn from those who are, please come out and join us. Bring your non-brewing friends too!



  • F.H.S. will pay for 1/2 the cost of your ingredients. In addition, you can call or email in your order a few days before and they will prep it, including milling your grains. Just don't wait until the last minute! You can pick up your ingredients the day before or the morning of. Please don't call in your order on Friday night.
  • Imperial Yeast will have hot water available, so you'll be able to mash in as soon as you set up. Cold water will also be available for chilling as well. Hoses will be at a premium, so bring your own to ensure yourself of water supply!
  • Brewers will also get to raid the "Yeast Cooler" and get free yeast for the days batch! Pick your strain! Imperial Yeast Strains

  • Beer!!!! Well, we couldn't have a Big Brew day without beer! FHS is bringing beer, Imperial Yeast will have some, and of course, you are welcome to bring some as well, because we all like to share our beer, right???
  • Food!!!! Our Burgermeister Meagan Thompson will be onsite grilling up some homemade homebrew sausages, with potato salad and other tasty snacks. 
  • FUN! Yes, I guarantee you'll have a great time!



ATTN BREWERS: If you are planning to brew during this event, we need you to do the following.

1. email Imperial Yeast to let them know you will be there. It will help them to have a good plan for head count.

2. If you would like to have your ingredients prepped in advance, contact Adam @ F.H.S. 503-203-8793 or They will prep your order (and even mill your grains as long as you order in advance) How awesome are the employees there??? 

3. If you're not brewing but want to get a batch of beer canned, let Joseph know with a quick email to him! 


Education topic: Open Forum!  A panel of experienced and successful OBC homebrewers will answer questions from the group in an open Q&A informal format.  Think of it as chatting about making better beer with 100 of your closest friends.

Food: We would like to have food available at this meeting, so we encourage our members to bring some food items for everyone to share. Don't forget that bringing food to share at a meeting can earn not only Karma points but also raffle tickets.  Meagan will be holding a raffle for all members that bring food items.  She will be giving away a $25 gift card and more. On top of all of this, our 2018 Burgermeister, Meagan Thompson would love the support!

Beer:  Beer is a very important part of these meetings. We wouldn’t have beer without our members. Growler fills and bottled homebrew  are highly encouraged as this is a great way to share your beer with your peers and get honest and immediate feedback. If you bring a keg of your homebrew to a meeting you will earn Karma Points! Keep in mind that we may have beer planned for the Education topic or beer from other club specific brewing events. So that we can balance the amount of beer available at our meetings It is very helpful for us to plan in advance of the meeting. If you would like to request a tap spot for your keg, or if you plan to pour a keg via a picnic tap, please let us know in advance! We ask that if you do bring a keg, that you give a brief talk to the members about the details of your beer . Please contact Club VP to see if there is room for your keg @
