There’s no better way to understand your beer than to make it yourself from the bottom up, plus it could be some of the best beer you've ever had. Here are nine reasons to get you on your way.
1. It’s easier than you thinkBrewing beer may seem like alchemy, but it’s certainly no more difficult than making a proper boeuf bourguignon. At the start, it’s just a matter of following a recipe.2. You’ll appreciate all beer more Learning the beer making process from the ground up gives you a true understanding, and appreciation, as to what goes in a beer. It’ll make you a better drinker! 3. Your best ever beerYour homebrew could be the best beer you’ve ever had. The love and care that you’ll be putting into could eclipse many brewery’s efforts – and it’s all yours. 4. Get dirtyIf, like many people, you’re tied to a computer most days, this is the chance to turn your hand to something manual, get dirty and involved. It’s good for the soul. 5. Easy as you likeFrom malt extract kits to all-grain, you can make it as easy or as hard as you like. Probably not best to kick off with a Double IPA at first, but a porter. 6. Go wildYou have the power. Want to put more hops in? Then go ahead. Fancy throwing in some black peppercorns, all yours. Homebrewing is a hugely liberating and creative experience. 7. Everyone wants to helpThe homebrewing community is a friendly one, there’s always someone willing to help on a forum somewhere if you’re doing it alone. 8. Make friends Some of the most fun nights in a pub are with the local homebrewing club. Not only do you get to sample other people’s efforts, you’ll learn a lot as well. 9. Go proIf you’ve always harboured an ambition to be a professional brewer, it’s in the home where you’ll want to start. Many of the world’s best brewers started at home.
If you're ready to take the plunge into homebrewing, many local homebrew shops sell beer making kits with everything you need to make your first batch of beer: malt, hops and yeast, racking cane, thermometer, tubing clamp, glass fermenting jug, cleansing solution, airlock, clear vinyl tubing and a screw-cap stopper. Happy brewing!
Pairing beer and food together isn’t all rules and science. That would make for a terribly boring dinner party! Instead, it’s the art of taking a good beer, some good food and partnering them together to make something even better. It’s the adventure of discovering what works, what doesn’t and what you like. It’s you taking a bite, taking a sip and then declaring your undying love for that imperial stout and chocolate cake.
Barrel-ageing beers is not a new thing, but it is getting more and more popular, and has probably never been as inventive. Adrian Tierney-Jones explores the new wave of ageing beer in wood
While some so-called off-flavours can be appropriate in certain styles others are not and may kill a little bit of your soul. Here's a quick guide to the most common off-flavours.

Another can spins off the line at Stone Brewing’s new brewery in Berlin. The speed of the whole process is astonishing, a matter of seconds from empty can to filled and sealed. Those amazing hop aromas that Stone Brewing’s IPA is known for are locked in, only to escape as you release the swirling lemon, pine, grapefruit aromas in one of the world’s best IPAs. Cans are the perfect container for this beer. And here’s why.
