Happy Brew Year!

Kent Dalton & Marisa Pruss enjoy making their own beer

Kent Dalton & Marisa Pruss enjoy making their own beer

 

Ringing in the New Year often means trying out new things. Need something hip, cool, trendy and well, tasty to add to your list?

How about brewing your own beer? Craft beers are to beer buffs what hard-to-find seasonally flavored coffees are to coffee connoisseurs. Once you have the ‘good stuff’ there’s just no going back to the mass-produced libations.

Craft beer making is indeed a “craft” a masterful mixing of top quality ingredients, fastidious attention to detail and careful timing, all while personalizing the brew to please the most discriminating of palettes. Craft beers, also known as microbrews are made locally and in smaller batches with more  interesting flavor profiles.

Craft beer types include Amber (toasted malt flavor), Pale Ale (slightly bitter with some malt), IPA or India Pale Ale (more alcohol), Lagers & Pilsners (very little bitterness, more floral essence), Stouts & Porters (deep roasted malts, sweet with coffee or chocolate flavoring), Wheats (fruity and bubbly), Lambics (sweet) and Cider (apple or pear fermented drink, not a beer).

Many craft beer brewers liken home brewing to merely following a recipe and that it’s as easy as baking. Just like most baking recipes are detailed, so are beer recipes. First and foremost, extreme sanitary measures are a mandate. Everything that touches the beer has to be thoroughly sanitized. The  brew can burn or boil over so a keen eye must be kept on the brew during the entire process.

East Cobb residents and neighbors Marisa Pruss and Kent Dalton (and a few other folks from the neighborhood) have brewed together for several years. They began brewing for similar reasons,  approximately 20 years ago, there weren’t a lot of good beers readily available and they discovered that they could brew really good beer with very little financial output. It quickly became a hobby for the group; spending 5-6 hours of total work over a period of 3-4 weeks netting great tasting brews that have been served at parties, weddings and all along the back decks of their neighborhood.

East Cobb has a few brewclubs that meet to discuss their recipes on a regular basis at Brewmasters Warehouse (where they also can get their home brewing supplies or sign up for a brewing class) or at the family-friendly Hoof and Ale Restaurant (where they can sample microbrews and munch on the signature Clayton Burger made of angus beef, pimento cheese, house pickles, crispy shallots).

Grab and go microbrew lovers, can visit the Craft Beer Factory for a growler or torpedo filled with favorite, hard-tofind microbrews. As if saving money and making your own special brew wasn’t incentive enough, many brewers believe the folklore that one can imbibe more homebrew (than commercial beers) without the risk of that pesky hangover because of the B vitamins that come from the yeast in the homebrew.

Happy Brew Year East Cobbers!
