I came across this article from www.mint.com‘s blog, so I thought I’d share it with our readers.
The short version: While homebrewing is great for many reasons, a savings of approximately $62/year just doesn’t seem worth it. That said, I know I tend to buy MUCH more expensive beers than what this article is figuring, so I could concieveably save more money than Mint.com’s estimate, but then I wouldn’t get to enjoy the deliciousness that comes from the professionals out there.
For what it’s worth, the majority of us at Ohio-Beer DO homebrew…though I am not one of those who do. The other guys really do enjoy it though, and I would always encourage anyone who is interested to try it for themselves! If you do brew your own, we’d love to hear from you (and try your beer), so please let us know!
JOhioBeer wanted to share the point of view of someone who is deeply involved in homebrewing. His video response can be found below.
