Brooklyn Brew Shop
by Crista, The Homestead Manager

Have you ever thought about making your own beer? Well now’s your chance! The Homestead at Ozark Natural Foods now carries Brooklyn Brew Shop Beer Making Kits. (And with Father’s Day coming up, these kits would also make the perfect gift for dear ol’ dad!)

The Owners of Brooklyn Brew Shop felt that making beer (real beer from real ingredients) can be simple, tasty, and most important, fun. They created stylish, easy-to-use Beer Making Kits designed especially for stove-top brewing and ingredient mixes for seasonally inspired beers. Their goal is to get everyone brewing by simplifying the beer making process without dumbing it down.

These kits have (almost) everything you need to make a gallon of beer right in your own kitchen. The only things you need to provide are a large pot for heating the mash, a mesh strainer, and a funnel. Have a small kitchen? Not a problem. There is no bulky equipment to mess with and only takes up the space of the one gallon jug. We currently carry 10 different varieties including Chestnut Brown Ale, Warrior Double IPA, and Afternoon Wheat for $39.99 ($36.99 Owner Bonus Buy). If beer is not your thing, we also have Hard Cider Kits and a Sparkling Wine Kit.

After you purchase the kit, you now have all the equipment you need to keep making batch after batch of delicious beer. The Homestead also carries around a dozen varieties of mixes for additional gallon sized batches of beer for only $16.99 ($15.99 Owner Bonus Buy).
