Home Brew without the Clean Up
Have you ever wanted to try brewing your own beer, but decided not to because of the investment in equipment? Or how about the clean up afterwards? Well, now you can try your hand at brewing without messing up your kitchen or investing in what you’re thinking may end up having been just a fleeting fascination. More and more brew-it-yourself establishments are cropping up here and there. It seems to be the perfect compromise between buying your own and turning your kitchen and nearby closet into a brewery.
Apparently, the trend started with wine storage. People wanted to try making their own wine, but didn’t want to commit the space in their home to the project. Businesses like Winestock in Honolulu started offering services to minimize the workload for these home made wine makers.
Grape D’Vine in Sussex is another example of a wine brew and storage business. It’s actually a U-Brew franchise started by Kelly Anderson and her husband Rob. At U-Brew’s, customers buy kits and have their wine brewed for them. “Basically, we’d go in and pick out whatever type of wine we liked and
we would have it put on, then we’d go back and bottle it,” said
Winestock eventually started offering beer brewing possibilities to customers in addition to wine brewing. Now Winestock takes its clientelle through the entire brewing procedure, including ingredients, equipment, and even personal instruction.
