How did you first get into homebrewing?
In 2006, I quit smoking. When researching tips on how to quit, everyone said to stay away from alcohol. I wasn’t much of a drinker at the time, so this really wasn’t a big deal. After three months without a cigarette, I was out to eat with my wife. I decided I could have a beer after going that long without nicotine and, on a whim, I decided I wanted to try something different. The restaurant had 4 beers on tap: Budweiser and Miller Lite, both of which I had had plenty of times before. They also had Newcastle Brown Ale, which I had vaguely remembered trying before. The other beer was one I had never heard of called Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. I can’t remember what I ate that night, but I had three of those Sierra Nevadas and was amazed at what I was tasting. I went into full beer nerdery after that and, around 2010, I got my first homebrew equipment and ingredient kit from My Old Kentucky Homebrew.
