Brew Age Videos Highlight The Craft Beer Revolution

Brew Age

Brew Age is a fantastic new video series from Oct28 Productions about the craft beer revolution and the breweries that are doing their best to change the way we think about and enjoy beer.

There are three episodes available right now, and each is only about six minutes long, so you can catch up and enjoy them all in one sitting. Plus, you can sign up at brew-age.com to be notified when new episodes are posted so you never miss a new episode.

I witnessed their setup firsthand at a recent homebrew house tour I attended, and can vouch for how passionate they are about capturing the spirit and the energy of the craft beer movement.

There’s a (surprising) dearth of high quality beer videos on the internet right now, so hopefully they can keep this series going and continue to give the world a new and exciting look into the world of craft beer.

Become A Homebrewer: Video Guide On How To Homebrew Beer

In addition to awesome profiles of Los Angeles homebrewing, Thrash Lab’s Subculture Club put together their own guide to homebrewing, hosted by Simon Ford. The video takes you through the 10-step homebrew process, and does a good job of covering the basics:

White House Honey Ale Homebrew Kit

If President Obama’s White House Honey Ale homebrew has inspired you to brew your own, then you can get started with a kit from CraftABrew.com that includes everything you’ll need to make your own version of the presidential brew.

Along with a carboy, air lock, various hoses and fittings, and a guide to craft brewing, you get a recipe kit that includes light malt extract, brewers grains (Amber crystal, Biscuit malt), hops (Kent Goldings & Fuggles), yeast (Windsor dry ale yeast), sanitizer and a brewing bag. They even met with a honey expert in Washington, DC to source the closest possible match for the honey that comes from the White House’s garden as an optional addition.

Looks like a great way to get started!
