Beer with depth, great flavor, and all the character in the world is what we do, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. If you love craft beers and you’ve been curious about homebrewing, why wait?

    Why Brew at Home?

    In the world of beer, there are always so many choices: dark, amber, wheat, lager, ale, and the list goes on and on. But wouldn’t you love to add your own hints of flavor and undertones? Not only can you make your own beer to your own specifications, you can make as much as you want, and you can do it as often as you like! Brewing at home is the smarter choice for so many different reasons and in today’s two-part blog, we’re going to explore a few of the most compelling.

    You’ll Be Saving Money

    Let’s face it, if you’re a lover of beer, chances are you spend a good amount of money either going to breweries, picking up the craft beer six-pack, or sampling the unique brews whenever you eat out. If you love beer, and especially unique, craft beers, you probably are used to paying for your passion...in one way or another. But the best thing about implementing a home brewing system is that you will save so much money in the long run. Granted, if you’re used to buying a 24-pack of Bud Light once a week, you might have us there, but for the people who enjoy the experience of a finely-crafted beer, a home brewing system might be the answer for you. It’s as simple as picking up a home brewing system and acquiring your ingredients. Check out some of our one-of-a-kind recipes for ideas and inspirations.

    You’ll Be Participating in a Time-Honored Tradition

    If you have an appreciation for finely-crafted beer, you probably appreciate the process by which that beer is created. Maybe you’ve taken tours of breweries, or perhaps you’ve done a little bit of extracurricular research on the history of beer. However you’ve done your part to educate yourself on the rich history of beer when you brew at home, you’re honoring that history. Brewing at home will make you feel like your German ancestors in no time.

    Make New Friends

    Creating your fine homebrew doesn’t have to be something that you tackle on your own. Rather, brewing is a great way to meet and make new friends. Join a home brewing group through social media or start one with some of your beer-loving buddies. Brewing can become the thing that rekindles friendships and creates new bonds with strangers.

    No matter your reasoning for brewing at home, you’ll definitely be thankful for the opportunity to take your love of craft beer to the next level. If you enjoy drinking finely-crafted beers, why not dabble in creating them yourself with an all-in-one brewing system? Who knows? You might even become a brewing expert and whether you decide to take your beers to farmers markets, or you simply reserve your brews for friends and family, brewing is definitely worth a try. Stay up-to-date on all of our news and blogs and stay tuned for part two of our blog series on the value of brewing at home.
