During Prohibition, bootleggers made their own booze by burying grapes underground or catching moonbeams in a jar of water. Watch alcohol being made the easy way with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a brewery tour for two and a Make Your Own Six-Pack from Williamsburg AleWerks, located in Williamsburg (a $21 value).

Since its first batch in 2006, Williamsburg AleWerks has invited brew-curious on a tour that shows how different varieties of malt, yeast, and barley yield American-style ales with unique flavor notes (a $12 value for two). These guided tours acquaint the uninitiated with the history of beer, from its widespread role in European society to the recent tradition of dousing a keg's worth of stout beer on Pulitzer Prize winners. Afterwards, tour-takers are led to a sampling of six or more varieties of suds, with possible beers include AleWerks' caramel-infused Washington Porter, the floral-flavored Drake Tail india pale ale, and the citrusy wheat ale. Freshly minted barley connoisseurs then can assemble their own personal six-packs for consumption at home (a $9 value).

Tours last about an hour and leave from the brewery store Monday through Saturday at 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. Tours are limited to 35 people, and all participants receive a complimentary tasting glass imprinted and officially endorsed by Williamsburg AleWerks.
