In some locations, tap beer is very common. In others, a lot of beer is in the market. With so much beer available for purchase, why should you homebrew at all?
For one, though the equipment for beer brewing is expensive, if you are an avid consumer and lover of beer, you can save a lot of money in the long run. It is still cheaper to brew your beer than to purchase beer from your local store. This is still because beer ingredients are getting more and more expensive.
As a homebrewer, you can incorporate your tastes and preferences in your beer. Although there are a lot of varieties in the market, beer brewing still has a lot of potential for improvement and room for new brews.
Brewing your brew is something you can be proud of. Beer is a common beverage on various occasions, including family gatherings, hangouts with friends, etc. Having your homebrewed beer is a good treat on these occasions and something you and your peers can enjoy talking about.
Everyone starts as a novice. It is quite challenging to be a brewer and quite an achievement to successfully brew beer. It is a craft worth exploring and a hobby that brings forth satisfaction not only to the brewer but also to others who might drink the homebrew someday.
