Ahhhh beer, how I love thee. Is there anything more refreshing than a Mexican beer with a lime on a hot day? Is there anything more satisfying than a dunkelweizen in the fall? Anything more perfect than a complex IPA or red ale? The answer to all of these questions is of course, no. Beer is such a wonderful beverage with so much depth to explore. Most of us undertake this exploration by heading down to our local market or bar, getting something that sounds interesting, and then imbibing. This exploration can be taken a step further however by inserting ourselves into the process earlier, and making the beer ourselves. Today’s guest, Emma Christensen (author of Brew Better Beer and True Brews) gives us a lesson on home brewing and explains how making beer can deepen our appreciation for this wonderful beverage.
