Unless you live under a rock, you’ve probably noticed the many different craft breweries popping up all over the map. I don’t exactly have my finger on the pulse of pop culture, but if I were to venture a guess, the meteoric rise in popularity has a lot do with the variety of specialty beers brewers can create in a small shop. With the right kit and ingredients, you can do the same thing at home and create your own unique brew, with a minimal cash outlay and a bit of practice.
