Liquor before beer…

October 26, 2011

…well not exactly…

Beer has been a part of human history for longer than you probably would have guessed. As for crappy beer? I’m not so sure. But in all honesty, its pretty fantastic to think about ancient civilizations discovering their first buzz. With the first documented historical evidence citing beer to be at least 5000 years old, it sort of changes the context of slugging a PBR.

And while the Nobler Experiment is and will typically be liquor centric, there’s no denying the importance of fermented beverages such as beer and wine in the evolution of alcoholic consumption. Which is why the “brew your own” effort has sparked my interest as of late. A fellow member of the Experiment has expressed some interest and I think it’s about time we get down to business. After drinking a Larry Gordon Home Brew this past weekend, I’m more convinced than ever.

Any one out there have experience, good or bad, with home brewing?

  1. Haven’t brewed myself, but a good friend of mine and Carl’s has started an acre of hops on his farm. It’s a huge operation getting a trellising system put in place, but he’s hoping to have hops for next year and open his own microbrewery one day.
