Beer infuses its consumer with instant courage in the face of broken bones, hangnails, and egregiously salted pretzels. Today's Groupon gets you the potion to concoct your own version of the diverse drink: for $19, you get a beginner beer-making class, plus 10% off all beer-making supplies, at The Cellar Homebrew (a $40 value).
The Cellar Homebrew offers fun-filled beer-making classes for aficionados and future practitioners of the frothy arts. During the three-hour class, you'll learn from an expert brewmaster the secrets of extracting the sweet nectar of barley to create a whole batch of the effervescent libation. Your wise beer-making mentor will go over the essentials and impacts of each ingredient, teach you the difference between "extract" and "all-grain" beer-making techniques, introduce you to important beer-enhancing grains, and enlighten you to the subtle flavors and aromas that present themselves in a swirling swish of the suds. Additionally, you'll receive 10% off all beer-making supplies you purchase for yourself or your grandmother at the completion of the course.
As you learn all the essential sanitation musts and bottling instructions, you'll follow the complete recipe for either a pale ale or a stout. Seize this opportunity to absorb essential brewing techniques and save money at your annual Christmas kegger. Call ahead to schedule your class.
Must be 21 years of age or older to purchase Groupon and participate in class.

The Cellar Homebrew
Though microbrewers celebrate limited flavor runs and regional ingredients, they still need much of the same equipment as the big brewers to concoct their craft beers. That's where The Cellar Homebrew comes in, outfitting winemakers, brewers, and cidersmiths with the equipment and ingredients needed to make their drinks. The store's owners––who boast more than 30 years of experience and a past line of fine wines––collect organic ingredients such as hops and yeast and sell them alongside fermentation equipment, keg systems, and cleaning supplies. They even offer one-hour on-location classes to instruct people in the basics of beer brewing. In addition to supplying items for alcoholic beverages, they also hawk basic supplies for cheese-, soda-, and vinegar-making, all of which go well over lettuce.
