Brewing Beer

Did you know that the best beer is fresh beer?

Most of what you buy and drink at the store or your local brewery is already past its "best to consume date". It is like buying old stale bread. You can eat it, but it isn't terrific?

Did you know that 75 cents in every dollar you pay for beer or cider has nothing to do with the product and everything to do with taxes, levies, distribution and packaging? You think you are buying beer, but the fact is that you are purchasing the right to buy beer. Someone took your beer right out of your mouth!

Did you know that it is as easy to brew beer as it is to grill a sausage or make a cup of tea? Your local brewer doesn't want you to know that! Your government is likely of the same conviction. If you knew how easy it is to make your own good beer, chances are you would already be doing it, and you will be skipping the fees, levies and taxes.

Brewing Your Beer

Here is the payoff. You can make your own beer and cider at home, with simple equipment that you can buy at the local hardware store and ingredients you can get over the internet - the best ingredients in the world!

We guarantee that your beer and cider will taste better than what you can buy at the store or your local craft brewery? If you brew your own beer, not only will it be fresh, taste better and cost you significantly less, it will also make you more popular, better looking, a nicer person, richer, etc....

You get the picture ;-)

For the price of a beer, we will show you how to do it with Black Rock Home Brewing's ingredients. It is the best brewing ingredients in the world! But hey, you can use anyone else ingredients too if you know what you are doing. Let's help you to know what you are doing and welcome to the world of brewing your own beer!

Welcome to our world of beer!

We are the Two Traveling Cowboys that produce entertaining travel-related promotional and educational content. We partner with and promote local, travel and maker-businesses. We feature our people, small businesses, unique products, amazing destinations, worthwhile causes, once-in-lifetime experiences and exciting events.

While we "slow travel" we seek out and share "local knowledge" of where to eat, where to drink, who to meet, where to stay, and what to do to avoid the typical tourist traps. Through our content, we show you the real people behind the unique maker-type businesses, while we give our opinion about their products and destinations.

Please join us as we inform and entertain you with stories on our Blog, Social Media and Video channels. We hope that you will share our experiences with us as an armchair traveller or meet us on the road as we introduce you to the insider's perspective of our places and "our people" through the Udemy online course platform.
