  • Well, as a former Chef for over 15 years I like the idea of creating new things and sampling the different flavors and concoctions. As an IT Architect now I have considerably less exposure to creating new recipes as I did while I was cooking for a living. Brewing gives me that exposure, creativity and the fun that goes along with that.rnI have brewed a Chocolate Stout that when over well even with those that don't drink any kind of alcohol never mind beer. I tend to enjoy Bock's, Dunkel's and other darker beers.
