Brew Talk with Bill
Bill received his first beer-making kit on Christmas 12 years ago. Today, he teaches the ins and outs of the beer game to others -- from fermentation to packaging -- in an effort to bring beer-making back into the homes and kitchens of fellow enthusiasts.
LS: Why sign up for a beer-making class?
BW&H: "It's a great hobby. A lot of people have a great love of beer, but they don't know how it's made. We want to show them that it's not a mystical process; it can be made right at home."
LS: What's your formula for success?
B&WH: "Our goal is for people to understand the beer-making process from end to end. Beer is better as a communal activity. We want to be there for people -- that's our reputation."
