Have you ever been on a brewery tour? I have, but nothing beats actually making the beer yourself! I can't take complete credit for this, our buddy Jason has been making beer for years. This past 4th of July he let me help out.
I was able to add the hops and then once the beer starting boiling I was given the big spoon and started stirring (pictured). This was his American Lager - a lot of steps to follow, but very fun!
If you ever get a chance to see Milwaukee from the water...do it! I don't know what it is about the water but everything looks beautiful when you're on the water. I took these over the weekend and just looking at them calms me. We have a beautiful city enjoy it and enjoy what's left of summer:)
