I am not to familiar with home brewing. Since so many of my friends do it, I really have no need to invest the time myself. I just sit back and document the experience when it presents it self and of course sample the final product. I do feel as a beer lover, it is something I should get into though. Even more so since the opening of a new home brew shop in my back yard. Of course, I'm referring to North Jersey Home Brew which recently opened it's doors to the home brewers and wine makers of Northern New Jersey - Sussex County.

Owners, Scott and Mike, were brewing one day when a piece of their equipment failed. At the time, the closest spot to go to was 45 minutes away. Instead of trekking out to either one of these home brew spots, both of which have limited selections for beer making.

It was at this point, Scott and Mike decided it would be a good idea to  open up their own beer and wine making store. Lets face it, everyone knows somebody that home brews. Once a niche hobby, home brewing is now growing rapidly and I think most locals will agree, it's nice to have somewhere to turn other than internet orders.

If you've never made beer before, a good place to start is with a recipe kit. There is an endless variety of Brewers Best extract kits with specialty grains in stock. At the moment, the Summer Ale kit has been the best seller, but with the upcoming cooler months I'm sure that will change rapidly.

A few weeks ago, local home brewers, Micksin Brewing, were brewing a 10 gallon batch of Belgian Pale Ale for an upcoming home brew competition. Recently, the guys won a medal at the Sussex County Fair for their Coconut Porter. Best of luck on the future competitions!
