DIY beer with High Gravity

Ingredients for the home-brewer at High Gravity

Michelle Pollard

Craft is cool again, but the ultimate mantle of hipness is bestowed not on the consumers of small-batch and handmade goods, but on those who do that small-batching and hand-making. With the help of High Gravity, you can be your own craft brewer. 

Whether you’re a hobbyist or beginner, High Gravity has all the supplies to make your boozy, bubbly dreams come true. It might not be glamorous (the shop resembles the back closet of a mad scientist’s laboratory) but the results could be glorious. And if the store’s mascot, an African gray parrot named Pippin, asks if you want some beer, do say “yes.”

There’s no need to keep your enthusiasm bottled up: every other Saturday at 11 a.m., the store hosts workshops on beer making and wine making. This is a great way to up your game, meet other home brewers or just see what all the buzz is about.
