BYOB: Brew Your Own Booze

Drinking is an all-American pastime, kind of like baseball (for some…), but it can result in a lot of trash or ridiculous bar tabs. Enter Mr. Beer...—-

Mr. Beer is a home-brewing kit sold at Target. For just under $45 and two weeks, anyone can have a case of DIY brewskies to enjoy. Refill packs run about $14-$17 and come in flavors such as St. Patrick’s Irish Stout, Classic American Light and American Devil IPA. Kits like these can be found at various retail and novelty stores, but I’ll be honest: I don’t have 50 bucks to spend on such an experiment. So instead, I searched the interwebs to see who has made their own beer or wine. I found everything from people who have tried a kit like this, to people who ferment their own wine from plants I had no idea were intoxicating!
