Brew Your Own Beer at Barleycorn

4/21/2010 12:03:00 AM
It's been a LONG time since I've brewed my own beer.  Nowadays I just don't have the space, but back in college, we had a huge basement and industrial kitchen that worked quite nicely.  Bloggery media rep DanDan recently recounted his experience at Barleycorn to me and it looks like it might be a good thing to check out.

I recently had a chance to stop by Barleycorn's Craft Brewery in Natick.  At Barleycorn's, you get to pick from a menu of beer and wine recipes and brew your own drinks.  All the ingredients and equipment to make your batch is on site, with typical beer ranging from $140 to $240/batch.  My friends and I brewed three batches of beer total (and at 15 gallons a batch, you can imagine how much drinking we have to do!), which took about two hours.  After a couple weeks of fermenting, we came back to bottle and label our beers, which also took about two hours.  Having brewed a few times in undergrad, I can definitely say that both the process and the final product was way way better than anything I'd ever experienced brewing at home.    

Here's one of our beers, a delicious Belgian Blonde we called the Monk's Moustache.

And here's another, a Russian Imperial Stout we named Ivan the Terrible.

I had a great time and would strongly recommend it to anyone.  Now I have the enviable task of drinking all this beer!!  Cheers.
