  • Co-worker would talk about home brewing and it sounded like something I'd like to do. Took a few years but I finally decided to go for it. First batch was a Canadian Ale and it turned out well so here I am. I use a basic setup with 2 True Brew buckets. I'll stick with kits for awhile until I decide to get adventurous.

    I was passing thru Mariposa today and checked the supermarket for your beer. Couldn't find it
    on the shelf. I went to the Pioneer Market. Is there another one in town or another area in the
    Pioneer wh...

    you sold in the last four years?I guess what I want to understand is, "if I live in a state
    where I can s...
