November 9, 2006 -- Ben Franklin's adage that "beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy," has never been truer. The last 20 years has seen a renaissance of artisan brewing in the United States that not only has matched European legacy styles in quality but gone beyond them in sheer creativity.
Unfortunately, many Americans still don't realize just how good beer can be. Those who've heard are faced with far too many choices from upwards of 1,400 domestic breweries, not to mention quality imports, a chore made all the more difficult by the millions spent on advertising by the country's large industrial producers.

TOLEDO, Ohio - September 6, 2006 -- Homebrewers take great pride in their craft and know that a great tasting beer is like a work of art. With roughly 1 million homebrewers in North America, according to several zymurgy industry sources, there are a lot of great-tasting suds flowing.
While a great tasting homebrew depends more on the brewer more than anything else, the equipment can make the skills of even the finest home beer brewer go right down the drain.
