Do you always buy the same beer? Of course not. Sure there’s the old standby, but often you wanna try something new that you can brag to your friends about discovering. In a sense, it’s all about being better than everyone else (and downing some good brews). For a whole ‘nother level of one-upmanship, try some of the recipes in Brooklyn Brew Shop’s Beer Making Book. It’s like the beer book for the modern day food lover who shops at farmer’s markets for seasonal veggies and buys their pork only when they know the name of the pig. It contains 52 recipes for home brews like Grapefruit Summer Ale, Peanut Butter Porter and S’more Beer. You’ll also get some basic lessons on growing hops, pairing foods and being a generally more awesome person than any of your friends.
