This year I decided to do something *special* for my hubby for Father's day. Now, I realize a beer related gift might not sound super appropriate, but since it was his day, I figured I might as well get him something he'd love. Thanks Visa :)
A friend of mine at work gave me the idea to get him his own beer brewing kit...and after it was suggested, it HAD to be done! Derek talks about wanting to open a brewery all the time (one of his many dreams) so it was the perfect idea. And it turns out it was...I guess he and a few of his buddies have been talking about how they wish they had one! They recently went to Indy to some sort of beer fest (beer tasting I was told) and have been dreaming ever since.
So anyway, brewing is underway. We currently have it brewed and bottled, and it's carbonating for 10 days. mmmmm ? Anyway, these pics capture it all...
