xBrew The Thought

Every four months or so a small group of home brewers will be brewing the same beer from all over the country (& now Canada), from east to west coast. This beer will always be a collaboration of ideas from each person involved.  Some of you may be thinking who are these crazy home brewers and what are they doing?  Well the answer to that question is fairly simple. We are beer bloggers and beer lovers from all over North America, period. We love beer, we love to taste beer, we love to brew beer, we love to bathe in errrr…. never mind. Anyway you get the point.

The idea for cross country collaboration was actually sparked by not just a love of home brewing but a love of craft beer and the industry. All year we have been drinking and discussing these great professional collaboration beers and now it’s time for the home brewers to take the reigns.  The goal will be for the 10 home brewers involved to agree on one base recipe. We will all be using the same ingredients and then taking it one step further. Each home brewer will add their own personal or regional twist.  After the process is all over we will then be mailing one another bottles of each for a live comparative tasting across the country. This will hopefully represent the spirit of true collaboration without bias. So stay here, get to know us and follow our progress throughout this collaborative effort. Below is a map of all of the states we have had home brewers from so far. To see which states were involved in each brew check out the individual experiment blogs. Let the experiment begin.!
