Brewing Beer

Step 6 — Become a Brewer

Becoming a brewer is easy. Just quit your job and take an entry-level position at a local craft brewery. If that route is not practical for you, you can purchase a home brewery kit and become one of the millions of people throughout history who brew their own beer. You can find complete kits available for anywhere from $40 to $200. They come complete with all the ingredients you need for a variety of craft beers. Northern Brewer offers a reasonable starter kit for $109.98.

Of course, using a kit is a little like starting your life as an artist by buying a paint-by-numbers kit. But, they say that's how Van Gogh got started. And there's always the option of quitting your job!
