With spring in full swing and summer just around the corner, people all across the United States are cracking open cold ones as they relax with friends and family. As the temperature starts to climb, there’s just something uniquely special about enjoying a refreshing beer. Whether your preference is for hefeweizens or IPAs, there’s a pretty good chance that you yourself have enjoyed a beer already this season.
And it’s with that thought in mind that we’d like to present a humble suggestion: now is the perfect time to start brewing your own beer. For many people, spring and summer bring about a more relaxed feeling. That’s not to say that you’re not busy, of course, but this is the time of year that people tend to devote to their hobbies. If crafting your own beers sounds up your alley, you’ll likely need a beer storage solution, and we have you covered in that area as well!
Keep Your Beers Safe With a Plastic Beer Crate
We’ve written in the past about how great it can be to undertake the hobby of brewing your own beer because it’s something that is easy to get into, but takes time to truly master. One of the most wonderful things about homebrewing is that no matter how many times you make a particular beer, you’ll be looking for ways to tweak it and make things just a little bit better. Whether that means adding a particular ingredient to the mix or adding just a little bit less of another, trust us when we say that it’s a fun thing to work through on your journey.
And, of course, as you start brewing beer, you’re going to be searching for beer storage solutions. You’ll find out pretty quickly that cardboard flats get soggy and that can create a big mess. The good news is that our stackable plastic beer crates offer the perfect solution! Beer bottle storage has never been easier and our crates hold 24 standard 12 oz bottles, making them the perfect way to enjoy more of the good stuff that you’ve spent your time making.
What Type of Beer Will You Brew?
The beautiful thing about brewing your own beer is that what you decide to make is up to you entirely. Whether you’re a fan of lagers, stouts, saisons, porters, ales, or even ciders, there is no shortage of variety, and there are countless resources out there to get you started off on the right foot.
Homebrewing.org, Beer and Brewing, the American Homebrewers Association, and BeerSmith all offer a number of great recipes to choose from, but there are a number of other places you can look. As a matter of fact, your local library probably has a book or two on the subject.
At the end of the day, you’re only limited by how much time you have, so get on out there, grab yourself the items that you need, pick up a few of our plastic beer crates, and get started. Happy brewing!
