Guide, Homebrewing-101

Brewing beer is not just a hobby – to some, it’s a new lifestyle. Sure, there are many perks to making your beer: control over what goes into it and full customization of the taste and smell of your beer are significant considerations. But many don’t know how homebrewing saves you serious money. It is not just a matter of not having to buy any more beer from the store. Homebrewing is also about brewing unique beers that you cannot find anywhere else or replicating high-quality beers for which commercial (craft) brewers charge a premium. In this article, we will convince you that homebrewing saves money – lots of it.

Homebrewing Saves you Money and Creates Social Value

Many people drink beer, wine, and other alcoholic beverages because they like the taste or want to share a nice drink with friends and feel good. Homebrewing allows you to craft the kind of drink worth sharing with those you love or care about. You will be surprised how choosing the type of yeast, hops, malts, spices, water, or any other ingredients can lead to a refreshing beer. As you brew beers and share your creations, you will find that there is a fanbase amongst your family and friends, all of whom can’t wait to make that next visit and sample what you will have on tap!!

Homebrewing Helps you Gain Knowledge.

There are only a few hobbies that lead to the level of knowledge exchange and learning. Brewing beer is one of them. When you visit your local brew shop, small brewery or brew club the level of enthusiasm will surprise you. Most brewers are friendly, open, ambitious and sometimes stubborn creators who always help or trade their brewing secrets. To illustrate this point, visit and join a Reddit or Facebook brewer community. The level of discussion, (distinct) opinions, and friendly attitudes will surprise you. The range in experience (from novice brewer to seasoned pro) present online is impressive and valuable – if you make use of their wisdom and expertise.
