Who brews?

Andrew Pearce - Friday, May 27, 2011
What sort of person decides to dabble in the dark arks? What sort of person brews their own beer?
No, it’s not the domain of friendless geeks without girlfriends. The answer is simple….anyone who likes both beer and being at home. If you can tick both those boxes it’s time to give beer brewing a shot. Home brewing, as we know it today, has been fast growing in popularity since the late 1970’s. And because you can brew ale, lager, stout, even organic beers and more, there’s bound to be a beer to suit just about anyone no matter how much of a total snob you are (just kidding). Plus, beer and food matching is the new black and gives the whole thing a bit of class.
And here’s something the large commercial brewers don’t want you to know….beer brewing is easy and the real beauty of it is you’re not restricted by flavour. Once you get the hang of the basics you can start to experiment with different flavours and produce a beer that tastes like just about anything. You’ve probably heard of chili beer, well what about pineapple or even coffee flavoured beer? Sure these ideas might sound like the mad rantings of a beer brewing fanatic but, regardless of whether those two flavours float your boat, they’ve been done, thereby proving the possibilities are limited only by your imagination: elephant flavoured beer is probably not an option however.
So, if you’re yet to dabble in the dark/pale/bitter arts why not try your luck with a beer brewing kit. They’re the best place for a newbie to start and, you guessed it, we sell em!
