Brewing Your Own Beer — My favorite beer story is about when I learned how to brew my own beer. My partner and I were invited to a brewing party. Two of my very best friends were going to brew beer. It was a cool day, and they had a turkey fryer on the front porch to cook the mash. We spent the afternoon and evening watching and learning the process. And, of course, drinking commercial craft beer. We were also treated to homemade meatball subs for dinner—a great way to spend a Saturday.
