We have some friends who used to make wine and who would bring us some of their home-made wine every year. It was always a treat, and we probably even have some of their wine somewhere. They made wine from their own grapes that they grew in their backyard. It was a slightly ambitious undertaking, so it was with appreciation that we received their wine gifts.
We have never had the privilege of having friends who also made beer. And obviously, we’ve never tried it ourselves. But the process is probably not as complicated or lengthy as you’d imagine, and the availability of beer brewing kits nowadays, likely makes it a snap.
