I'm a 24-year-old newbie currently back in my home turf of (way) North Jersey and the Lower Hudson Valley area. I've lived in Boston, Colorado, and Nicaragua, always making sure to tour the local breweries and distilleries. I'm very excited to learn more about home brewing and to have found a fun 'adult science experiment'-type hobby that I can share with friends. I think having communities like this is wonderful, and it's awesome to see more people getting together over great beer offline as well. Just discovered a newer tap room and craft beer shop near me that also houses shelves of board games...a perfect combination in my book. Bottling my first batch today, wish me luck! Looking forward to learning from all of you.
