My younger son got me into brewing a few years back. He's 30 and we brew together often. Just this weekend we had his 30th birthday party and had 4 brews on tap - two of his and two of mine. Lots of friends and family and lots of good beer!

My 5 year old loves to help me brew and he's a great partner. I'm training him young. He can already tell me the four main ingredients in beer. I also brew with my dad, so it's a great way to bond with both your parent and your child.

Going to brew a batch with my oldest son on Saturday. Have to go to the local brewing supply and pick up a kit. I started a few months back and really enjoy it and I think he will also. The weather is going to be pretty crappy so it will be a good brew day!! Maybe I will get to steal some of his beer for a change!
That's really nice, it was kind of the opposite here. I taught my father to brew beer and mead, helped him put together his electric brewing rig, etc. It's really fun brewing with him, even though I often end up doing most of the work. But then again, I also drink quite a lot of it too!

We have fairly similar tastes, he seems to like it more hoppy than me but other than that it's robust, malty beers all the way. Smokey characters are a big plus. It's always nice how he brags about the recipes I put together; "My son made this recipe!"

Speaking of which, I'm always the one supplying recipes. At this rate I might release the first beer recipe book in Swedish. :P

That's awesome. I have fun drinking a few beers with my dad. Before 21 no way Jose. Beer + family = good time.
