Finding a new hobby is tough. Needlepoint is dangerous, pottery involves too many Patrick Swayze apparitions, and shuffleboard is fine for the thrill seekers of the world, but you’re just not one of them. Hey! We’ve got it! How about you start making beer!? Yes, that could work.
A HopBox Brewing Kit promises to put you squarely on the brewmaster path, as it includes everything you need to brew your own liquid gold. Each HopBox is made in a small shop in Somerville, Massachusetts, and comes with high-quality glassware, a portable handcrafted wooden base, instructions, and of course, the ingredients. Choose from four different models and brew up to three gallons of beer at a time. Leave shuffleboard’s twisted ankles and bloody noses to the other guys—you’ve got beer to drink. [Purchase]
