A cupboard of hand-blown glass flagons is only a half-achievement without hand-hopped lagers and ales to fill them. DIY brewers can celebrate Flag Day by purchasing today's Groupon for a complete home-brewing kit for $49 from Beer and Wine Hobby (a $84.18 value). This Groupon does not include an additional shipping charge of around $10–$15 (depending on location).
Beer and Wine Hobby's complete home-brewing kit transforms the semi-casual beer enthusiast into a true-blue beer scientist capable of crafting his or her own bottled buddies. You'll master the flavor properties of malts, hops, and yeast; learn the differences between ales, lagers, porters, and energy drinks; and find out how to properly and sanitarily use a home-brewing system to create a basic extract recipe. Brewers can bottle their own amber ichors and dominate beer-pong competitors with a thorough understanding of the victory ales they swig.
Once you've become a full-fledged froth farmer, you can show off your sudsy skills to family and bemused pets. Ale-crafters get a fermenting bucket with spigot cover, a bubbler fermentation lock, sanitizers, a hydrometer, flexible tubing, a Crown bottle capper, 55 Crown bottle caps, a premium beer-brewing malt ingredients kit with instructions, a package of 250 carbonation drops, and 30 custom-made labels—sufficient equipment to transform any basement from a Beatles Rock Band room into a brewing factory for beers that the Beatles would have surely written songs about, assuming you name your beer "love."
Beer drinking is part of a rich national imbibing tradition, but brewing one’s own beer takes the adventure to a new and personal level. Today's Groupon to Beer and Wine Hobby will give you everything you need to make a home brew that earns a promotion to Prime Minister of the Pump at your next kegger.
You must be 21 or older to redeem this Groupon.
