Affordable Beer in Tough Times
With the economy doing its best to dampen our spirits, many beer drinkers are wondering how to get the best beer for their buck. This is often addressed in homebrewing circles like The Brewing Network (discussion this past Sunday with Chris Graham) and Basic Brewing Radio (e.g. a podcast on the topic of mash tun efficiency). Maureen Ogle came across a piece called the Economics of Homebrewing and shared it with us. And in my own backyard, literally, Adam at BB2 often tackles this dilemma, most recently in a question that he posed to the readers of his site. In the mainstream media, Philly's local Fox affiliate hosted Joe Sixpack (aka Don Russell) last week as he offered up his handful of reasonably priced (and good!) commercial beers.
