For some, beer is a beverage. For others, it's an interest, a passion even. For still fewer, it is a lifestyle. You might know one of these strange alchemists. For they've turned their basements, their garages, or that old potting shed into some manner of mad science. And the result: Beer.
These aren't your regular Beer Aficionado. They make beer. Do they do it well? Maybe. That's not what's important. What's important is: They made it themselves. Was it cheaper than buying beer at the store? After all the equipment and supplies, probably not. But that doesn't matter. What matters is they brewed beer.
