A Note from Scott's Wife...............
In Support of Home Brewing
Now the first thing you must know is that I do not like beer.
Yes, I know that is both shocking and disturbing to some, but please hear
I do not drink beer, I cannot stand the smell of it, much less the taste of
it, but I love homebrewing.
Homebrewing is a
So many very kind and gentle folks are involved in this hobby. It is very
involved. People spend literally hours working out just the right recipe, calculating

Homebrewers are some of the nicest People.
The people I have met along my life's path who are avid craft beer enthusiasts
are kind, polite and educated folks.
Homebrewers have a genuine sense of Community. They are usually quiet supporters
of important civic functions like Education, volunteer fire fighters, Churches,
Wildlife refuge, Volunteers in Policing, Hospice, Community Food Banks, Homeless

The Homebrewers that I know who have families always put their families FIRST
(as it should be!) I know of a few "unattached" Homebrewers - most
of whom would *love* to make a home and family with someone. Please e-mail me
if you might be interested in finding out more about these charming fellows.
History - Beer has a fascinating history. Read more about this rich and fascinating
history! For thousands of years folks have been drinking ale, wine and beer
because water quality and trustworthiness has not always been reliable.
