I was Derek’s Christmas present. His lovely and thoughtful girlfriend bought me (and my brother-in-law Kyle) at a good price. This weekend, he cashed in his gift certificate, and I stopped by to help him brew his first batch of milk stout.
Perhaps you have a loved one (or self) who is interested in brewing. Homebrewers, if you know one, love to spread the cheer and are almost always happy to prod a young brewer into a fun new hobby. Don’t hesitate to buy a Homebrewer Gift Certificate for your next gift idea. It’s fun for the giver, receiver and gift-person.
After a fun day of malt, hops, yeast and water–and a few beers–Derek, above left, is now among the swelling ranks of homebrewers. Lift one in his name!
