Making beer at home is more than a hobby; it’s a real passion, and for some, it becomes a lifelong profession. Beer is noble like that. You take care of it from grain to bottle, days and weeks on end, only to share one good beer with friends.
If you know someone that fits the description, then you have a home brewer in your life. This is an odd bunch! And that means finding the right gift for a homebrewer is a bit complicated.
When you brew beer at home, that’s kind of what you think about all day long, meaning regular gifts might not cause the impact you thought they would.
