About a month ago my awesome girlfriend Rose bought me the Brooklyn Brew Shop Beer Making Book for my birthday. Since then I’ve brewed up two Everyday IPAs, a chocolate Maple Porter and a Raspberry Ale.

I’ve only tried a few bottles of the first batch of Everyday IPA, but I can officially report that they tasted pretty good. Not quite as hoppy as I had hoped for, but a good start all the same.

Here are a few shots from the brewing and tasting of the first batch.
