The Session

The Session #92: I Made This

Jeremy Short · Sept. 5


We're hossting The Session a monthly beer blogging topic! And here's the topic to write about for October 3, 2014.

As I scanned through the list of the past 91 sessions I found only one about homebrewing. Only one? Well, we are here to rectify that with Session #92. I know that many beer bloggers don’t homebrew, so don’t worry I am going to keep this simple and straightforward.

The idea of this session is how making something changes your relationship with it. For example, when I first started homebrewing I wasn’t a big fan of lagers. After learning to brew I realized how complex and particular lagers were and I came to love them because of that. Here are some ideas to get your writing juices flowing:

For the homebrewer:

- How did homebrewing change your view of beer? Do you like beers now that you didn’t before? Do you taste beer differently? Does homebrewing turn you into a pretentious asshole?

For the I only homebrewed once crowd:

- What was the experience like? Did you enjoy it? Hate it? Did you think about beer differently afterwards. 

For the I have never homebrewed crowd:

- Maybe you had an experience at a brewery you would like to share? Maybe your toured a brewery and learned and experienced the making of beer that impacted the way you think of beer? Or maybe you’ve brewed in a professional setting?

For the I hate homebrewing crowd:

- Why? Why do you hate us so?

I am excited to be hosting a Session and can’t wait to see what everyone posts. The Session will take place Friday October 3. This also happens to be right in the middle of the Great American Beer Festival, so I hope some of you will still be able to participate. I know I am going to have to get this done early before GABF kicks into action. To contribute, feel free to comment here or send me an email: jeremy (a) pintwell (.) com.
