Sometimes doing something yourself is more rewarding, whether you're brewing your own beer or licking your baby's forehead clean like a lioness. Polish your craft with this Groupon.
$29 for a Beer-Making or Winemaking Class ($60 Value)
Students receive access to equipment and personalized instruction as they craft their own wine or beer, which U Bottle It stores at the proper fermentation temperature for 4–6 weeks. Beer-making classes take place over two to three sessions, while winemaking classes take place over four to five. This Groupon covers instruction and storage, but students must purchase their own beer, wine, port, or sparkling-wine ingredient kits ($24.39–$195). Most beer kits make 5–6 gallons (54–64 12 oz. bottles), while all wine kits yield 30 bottles. At bottling, customers must also supply bottles and closures, which can be brought from home or purchased in the store.
