It’s not easy, but it’s also not hard.
A few months ago, a home brewing kit arrived at BuzzFeed as part of a promotional campaign by the America's Homebrewer's Association. We have a beer club at BuzzFeed (!!) and when its organizer Regis Courtemanche saw the kit sitting near my desk he got excited. He eventually said something like, “Wow, Emily, you run the food section on BuzzFeed and you've never even made your own beer? Let's fix that.” So we used the kit to make some beer with help from another avid home brewer and BuzzFeed beer club member, Justine Bienkowski.
