Them Apples

Brooklyn Brew Shop Hard Cider

What It Is: I’m not a big beer drinker by any means, but man do I love me some cider! So I was super psyched to see that Brooklyn Brew Shop – who I’ve featured before – has expanded their line of DIY brewing kits to include a Hard Cider option. Just use fresh cider and ferment it or actual apples, and you’ll have your own bottle o’ brew in tart, dry, or bubbly varieties.

Who It’s For: Your gluten-free hubby, to make his own hard drink. Your home brewing brother, to give him a new challenge. Your DIY friends, as a cool housewarming gift.

What It Costs: $50.

Where It’s At: Try

BONUS ENTRY into my Mother’s Day beauty giveaway! Tell me in the comments below, what do you think of this gift idea?
