Stylish Home Brewing Kits


Ever wanted to brew your own ale but never been quite sure where to start? Or maybe you’ve been put off by the look of most homebrew kits? After all, a lot of them rely on gigantic plastic tubs that look like bins. Are you the kind of guy who drinks moonshine out of bins? Big existential question, that.

This is where Box Brew Kits come in. Stylishly blending stainless steel and reclaimed wood (as well as your very own beer), the Boston, MA company offers four different set-ups through its website, boxbrewkits.com, for delivery anywhere in the world.

Prices start at $159 (£99) for a 1-gallon ‘Microbrewer’ kit, ranging up to $279 (£173) for a 2-gallon 'Double Barrel' kit with 8 swanky cobalt blue bottles. If you want to make more beer, however, you can invest $229 (£142) in a 3-gallon 'Tall Boy' set (bottles not included).

The Box Brew Kits are stylish, but those giant glass jars (called ‘carboys’), cork stoppers and bits of wood also bring an air of Victorian alchemy to the whole process. Exactly the sort of equipment you ought to be using to craft perfect home-made ales.
