What You'll Get
Because fresh water would spoil on lengthy voyages, 18th-century English ships headed to India stocked up on hoppy beer, an adequate source for hydrating sailors and filling up the ship's lower-deck wave pool. Brew stellar squirt-gun munitions with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 toward any homebrewing or winemaking equipment kit at HomeBrew USA. Choose between locations in Norfolk and Hampton.
HomeBrew USA sets soon-to-be brewmasters on a path to filling up kegs and bottles with homemade concoctions, outfitting frothy-art aficionados with all the necessary apparatuses to get started. An ideal Father's Day gift for craft-brew-crazy dads, a comprehensive homebrewing equipment kit should contain all the necessary hardware for fermenting, bottling, and capping, including buckets, siphon, airlock, hydrometer, and a security system that loudly plays "Everybody Have Fun Tonight" to ward off intruders. For a simple-yet-effective setup, the Bare Bones kit employs single-stage fermentation, in which brewing and bottling are done in the same vessel ($49.99), and the Basic bundle boosts brewers to the next level with an extra bottling vessel for clearer beer and easier carbonation, plus a bottle filter, brush, and cleaner ($96.99). More proactive beer-makers can pick up the Plus package, which sports a complete dual-fermentation system, using two buckets and a five-gallon glass carboy for a multi-stage process that reduces yeast sediment and creates clearer beer ($160).
As for grape-based beverages, the Bonus ($164.99) and Premium ($199.99) wine kits provide inspired brewsmiths with the tools to invent new varietals, such as cabmerlonnay savinfandel, or to recreate their favorite tried-and-true red and whites.
