Homebrew and Kraftbrew

7/20/12

Things don't feel right in our house if there isn't a batch of home-brewed beer being made. Jeff recently bought new beer-making equipment and wasted no time in using it. For him, making beer is more than just a weekend hobby. It's a way of clearing his mind from all the things that stress him out during the week. A few weekends ago, Jeff and his cousin Nick made a batch of IPA. Can't wait to see how it turned out. 

Our house has turned into a mini-brewery of sorts. I had a plumber come to the house yesterday and he asked me if I liked to cook when he saw all the kettles and propane burners. "No," I said. "I make beer." He laughed because he thought I was joking, but then quickly realized I was serious. I wish I could pay him in beer.
If you're like us and love the art and science of beer, check out the Summer Kraftbrew Beer Fest going on tomorrow in downtown San Jose. Besides tasting beers from 60+ breweries from all over the world, there will also be panel discussions with brewers and other folks in the beer industry. The organizers of Kraftbrew want to focus on the passion of craft brewing. There will be good food and music to enjoy, too.

I'll be there, and I'm looking forward to learning more about local craft breweries.
