HopHouse Brewery & Taproom
« on: January 24, 2015, 04:08:07 AM »
First time post long time homebrewer (1995).  I recently started to convert my garage into a brewery and taproom. I have a couple of 14.5 gallon Stout Tank conicals and 2 minibrew 7 gallon conicals and brew on a 10 gallon HERMS brew system. I host a Saturday afternoon pint club for friends to critique and enjoy my ales along with a game of darts and music.









* I Recently added a HERMS coil to the HLT.

Can I be your friend? Anyone who pays that much attention to tidy and clean and aesthetically pleasing undoubtedly makes fine beers.

That's a serious home brewer man cave.  I used to be an avid dart shooter when I was younger.
