Fireworks, BBQs and craft brew. Is there anything better? Maybe beer you brewed yourself on your way toward your career in commercial craft brewing? For those who are taking their first homebrew steps into a larger craft brewing world, you can celebrate this Independence Day in craft beer style with Northern Brewer’s White House homebrew kits.
The White House Honey Ale is made with a big foundation of malt with strong tones of biscuit and toffee and balanced out with pure honey to lighten the body. For the brand-new brewer, there is the White House Honey Ale beer kit, while experienced homebrewers would want to take a look at the White House Honey Ale 1-gallon recipe kit. The White House Honey Porter, on the other hand, is designed with a moderate bitterness that includes black and roasty elements, a generous amount of sweet caramel and toasty Munich salts and a pound of honey. Brand new brewers, check out the White House Honey Porter Beer Kit. Experienced brewers and CBB readers, check out the White House Honey Porter One-gallon Recipe Kit.

Just check out this morsel of invaluable insight from Mitch Steele, brewmaster, Stone Brewing Co., Escondido, Calif.:
Brewing unconventionally doesn’t always work, and you won’t always be happy with the results, but the benefits are always great. You will learn something important no matter the result. When it does work, it’s a magical experience. Regardless, you will walk away with a lot more brewing knowledge than you had before you started.
That doesn’t mean it’s OK to ignore conventional styles. If you are a brewer, you’ll be in a much better position to take risks with your formulations and brewing procedures if you already have a solid grasp of beer styles and how to brew them.
