Restrictions on homebrewing in the United States were relaxed in 1978 in response to the growing numbers of DIYers setting up makeshift beds inside of brewhouse kegs. Distill delectable drinks in homey comfort with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of homebrewing equipment at the Fifth Season Gardening Company location in Asheville.
Not just a go-to spot for garden items, the diverse establishment boasts must-have supplies for the domicile-bound crafter, from hops, yeast, and malts to cleaning accoutrements and educational books. Keep unwanted breezes and nonpioneering attitudes out with the EZ Cap amber bottles ($33.95 per case of 12 16-oz. bottles), or conjure up some frothy goodness with the American Pale Ale kit, complete with specialty grains and easy-to-follow instructions that double as an ode to famous drinking songs when read backwards ($34.95).
