I was 25 and introduced to brewing by a friend in Switzerland. I was hooked. Been brewing on my own for the last 4 years.

For my 31st birthday, this past May my wife bought me a nice beginners kit from a lhbs. I am soon realizing I will be pouring money into this hobby for a long time.cheers

I started at age 41. I'm 42 now. Just coming up on the one year anniversary of my first brew. It's crazy how much I've learned in one year. Even scarier is to have all the notes and realize how much beer I have drank in that year.

I had my first taste of beer when I was about 10 years old. I started homebrewing at 29, I'm now 31. My 3 hobbies are brewing, guitar and modding my f150 truck. They are all money pits but bring so much joy to my life!! Cheers!

I started with wine, when I was 21. Then quickly decided to brew, also when I was 21. I'm 33 now, but took a 5 year hiatus ending 3 years ago. Now I'm addicted to the process again!

I started when I was 23. I wonder how many brewer's went on hiatus after the birth of their first born?
