Fresh Brews: Homebrewing Photos, 5th Century Home Brewing And More

Fresh brews is my weekly round up of everything going on in the beer blogosphere. Week to week, I never know what I’m going to find, but if it’s funny, informative or entertaining I’ll pass it on.

Real Beer: French likely homebrewing 2,500 years ago
France might be known for their wines, but in the 5th century they were are also busy brewing their own beer. Now that’s old school!

Mash Sparge Boil: Photo Guide To Home Brewing

If you watched the Brewmasters show, you might remember Dogfish Head having to dump a ton of sweet, delicious 120 Minute IPA because of quality issues. Now they’re finally back on track and I know what I’ll be searching for on Friday.

Liquid Diet: Will craft imports be this year’s big trend?
My first stop at my favorite beer store is the American craft beer section, however more and more often I’m sneaking down to the import section. It seems that I’m not the only done doing that as import sales are slowly starting to rise. I think the only thing holding me back is that I don’t know a lot about many of the imports.

About the author /


I'm a former coffee blogger, but I’ve been getting to know some really good craft beers and really getting into home brewing. I couldn’t resist starting this little project called Passion For The Pint. When I’m not blogging about coffee or beer, you can find me exploring New Orleans’ wide range of eateries, rooting for the New York Yankees (don’t hate me, I’m originally from New York), working out to burn off the beer calories or reading about beer.
