Back in 2000 we started homebrewandbeer.com to help us share our love of beer and homebrewing. We are constantly updating the site to include new features and help us spread the word about good beer.

Homebrewandbeer.com exists to get the word out that beer is not just the bland, mass-produced lagers available in many countries and that making beer full of flavour at home is actually pretty easy.

Whether you are an aspiring homebrewer, already brew or just love beer, join us and share the joy.

Cheers,

Oliver and Geoff
