Let’s face it: guys tend to get the short end of the Valentine’s Day stick. While girls can look forward to jewelry, candy, and a night out, what do you get your man for the holiday? This year try surprising the beer-loving man in your life by getting him a Mr. Beer home brewing kit.
Home brewing may sound complicated but the Mr. Beer system makes it easy. Forget the images in your head of large, expensive silos you’ve seen at big breweries; the Mr. Beer kits are simple and practical. Each kit also comes with everything your beer lover will need to make their first batch of delicious brew.
Depending on the kit you buy, the Mr. Beer system will include:
- Keg-style fermenting bucket
- Hopped-Malt Extract (HME) of various flavors
- Yeast for fermenting
- Resealable plastic bottles
With that all they’ll need is some water and basic kitchen utensils and they’ll be all set. You could even read up on our guide to brewing beer so you can lead your new home brewer down the right path even if he refuses to ask for directions.
Home Brewing with Mr. Beer
Since it can be used again and again, the Mr. Beer home brewing kit is really the Valentine’s Day gift that keeps on giving. Home brewing is a hobby that is rapidly growing in popularity and gifting your beer fan with a Mr. Beer kit is great way to get them started.
Instead of getting your beer fan a six-pack that’ll be gone by the end of the week, why not get them a gift that will indulge their creativity and reward them for their efforts? Not even the finest of craft brews include the sense of accomplishment and pride that brewing your own beer will give you.
After their first beer creation is complete, it’s simple for them to get refills of the same brew or try something new. As their skills increase, they’ll even be able to experiment with different techniques and flavors so be prepared to play guinea pig to your new home brewer.
Want to really go for the Valentine’s Day crown this year? Imagine how impressed your guy will be when you not only get him a Mr. Beer kit but also nail the perfect recipe for him to brew.
