5 Ways Homebrewing Will Make You a Better Beer Nerd - American Homebrewers Association

5 Ways Homebrewing Will Make You a Better Beer Nerd - American Homebrewers Association | Homebrewing, craft beer | Scoop.it
Do you consider yourself a craft beer nerd? Here are five ways homebrewing will make you a better beer nerd, and up your beer prowess exponentially.
Northern Brewer's insight:

Home brewing takes beer nerdy to a whole other level. It's one thing to be a craft brew fanatic. But for a deep understanding of what really drives the taste and composition of a beer, it's home-brew experience all the way.

Northern Brewer's insight:

This is great news for home brewers! The Craft Breweries are always first in line to get hops that are in limited supply, due to their sheer buying power. Northern Brewer has been able to get our hands on many of these by way of our strong relationship with Hops suppliers. But we welcome having a more steady supply.  More hops means more unique recipes. This year we've been able to build kits for Medusa, Azacca and Mosaic hops.  Keep an eye out for some new ones coming soon; waimea & calypso.

Why Not Brew Your Own Beer? 

Why Not Brew Your Own Beer?  | Homebrewing, craft beer | Scoop.it

The art of crafting homemade hooch isn’t just for the heroes of country music songs anymore. Ever since 1979—when President Jimmy Carter signed a bill allowing homemade booze for the first time since prohibition (!)—homebrewing has become an American pastime for self-declared connoisseurs of beer. (Though it wasn’t until 2013, when Alabama and Mississippi got on board with the bill, that the practice finally became legal in all 50 states.) In fact, many of your favorite breweries and bar staples were started by people experimenting with flavors in their own homes: Russian River, Dogfish Head, and Sam Adams all started that way...

Northern Brewer's insight:

Seems like an obvious choice to many of us.... the merits of home brewing are too many to list. Don't underestimate the value of being the most popular guy in your neighborhood once the word gets around.

Why it's necessary to keep the craft in craft beer

Why it's necessary to keep the craft in craft beer | Homebrewing, craft beer | Scoop.it

There have been a lot of emotions flying around the Internet lately.

Perhaps the anger and hurt feelings began when Belgium-based Anheuser-Busch InBev announced its acquisition of Elysian Brewing Co. in late January 2015. These emotions intensified with the commercial Budweiser ran during the Super Bowl, belittling craft beer brewers and drinkers everywhere.

A war of words on social media and in articles ensued, further fanning the flames of verbal ugliness being spewed from every direction... [click headline for more]

‘Craft beer’ isn’t what you probably think it is

‘Craft beer’ isn’t what you probably think it is | Homebrewing, craft beer | Scoop.it

How is craft beer, a term seemingly synonymous with “scarce” or “artisanal” brew, somehow sudsing one in every ten pint glasses in the US? These days bars, restaurants, supermarkets, and bodegas all stock those cleverly-named, colorfully-labeled brews, complementing the Buds, Sams, and Stellas in the cooler. How do these places keep these special brews in stock? It turns out craft has little to do with size. The Brewers Association (B.A.) merely requires that a brewery produce fewer than six million barrels a year to qualify as “craft.” That’s 1.98 billion bottles, a volume achieved only by the world’s largest international mega-conglomerate brewers. So, size clearly isn’t everything...[click headline for more]

Northern Brewer's insight:

We applaud all of those brewers with the drive to create their own Breweries. However, as the definition of Craft Beer expands and erodes, we want to get back to our roots. Home brewing is the new Craft. Made by hand, in exceptionally small batches. Created by home brewers with a passion for hand-crafted, personalized beer, with no compromise in quality or ingredients. No catering to the masses, no accommodations made for transporting across the country.

Just pure, unadulterated beer for the love of brewing, drinking and sharing with friends.
