More than 1.2 million Americans brew beer at home, according to the American Homebrewers Association. If you’re not among those who have taken the plunge into the sudsy waters of do-it-yourself brewing, you should be. To get you motivated, we spoke with three brewing greats who started small and turned their passion into a career. 

 

Jim Koch, founder & brewer of Samuel Adams

Jim Koch, Sam Adams

How does someone get started brewing?  
The bible for every homebrewer is "," written by Charlie Papazian. 

 

What’s the most experimental flavor you ever brewed? 
Over the years, we’ve experimented with thousands of different ingredients, including things like rocks from our backyard, chickens, beef hearts, and Japanese yuzu wood.

 

Any fun stories about your brewing successes? 
When it was announced (in 1985) that Boston Lager was selected as the “Best Beer in America” (at the Great American Beer Festival), we were shocked. A family recipe that was first brewed in my kitchen was declared the “Best Beer in America!”

 

Biggest rookie mistakes? 
While your bottles are fermenting, cover them with a box or a towel. Nothing’s more alarming than bottles exploding because they’re over-carbonated. It sounds like grenades detonating! 

 

What are your three best tips for brewing a great beer?
1. Brew a beer you’re sincerely passionate about brewing.
2. Brew with the best quality ingredients you can find.
3. Be patient and keep brewing until you perfect your recipe.

 

What do you love most about brewing beer?
I’m a sixth generation brewer, so brewing is in my blood - .06 so I’m legal! And I am still as passionate about brewing today as I was when I first started 32 years ago. 

 

Anything else we should know? 
We’re celebrating 20 years of our Sam Adams LongShot American Homebrew contest (). Homebrewers across the country can submit their best and most innovative beers. Two winning homebrewers will be featured in the Samuel Adams LongShot variety pack in 2017.

 

(Editor's note: To learn more about Koch's rise to success, we highly recommend his entertaining and inspiring new book ".")

 

John Legnard, brewmaster of Blue Moon Brewing Company

John Legnard, Blue Moon

How does someone get started brewing? 
The  is a great place to start. 

 

Where can first-time brewers get their ingredients?
I’d start with your local homebrew shop if you have one in your town. The local shop will likely have knowledgeable folks to answer questions. Chances are the shop is also associated with some homebrewing clubs they could connect you with.

 

Biggest rookie mistakes? 
Keep things clean. And don’t let your dog in the kitchen when you’re brewing. 

 

Are there any life lessons you learned from brewing? 
I did my senior college project for my industrial fermentation class on beer brewing and I brought in samples. That was when it clicked for me that people love beer and the guy that makes it. 

 

What are your three best tips? 
1. Don’t worry if you mess something up. The beer and your friends won’t know.

2. Don’t get stuck on one style or recipe.

3. Use good yeast.

 

What do you love most about brewing beer?
I love experimenting and making a beer that completely surprises somebody. I love it when somebody says, “that’s my favorite beer I’ve ever tried.”

 

Anything else you think we should know?
When I started homebrewing in 1989, the craft brewing industry was in its infancy. After college graduation I had to tell my parents I wasn’t going to school for veterinary medicine but I was going to help start a new brewery. My mom said, “Is that even legal?” That hobby has now turned into 25-plus year career with Blue Moon Brewing Company that has led me all over the country and world visiting great breweries and sampling great beers.

 

Nick Crandall, brewmaster of Redhook Ale Brewery

Nick Crandall, Redhook

What type of equipment do homebrewers need? 
You can get started with some pretty simple equipment and upgrade as you go. Basics that you need are a kettle — maybe what you’re making spaghetti in already — and a fermentation vessel, a large container that holds the beer while it’s fermenting: glass carboys, food grade buckets and stainless fermenters are all good options with different benefits to each.

 

Biggest rookie mistakes? 
Remember that the kettle is hot. I might have learned that one the hard way.

 

How long does it take to get good at homebrewing?
It’s kind of like cooking or barbecue, some people are going to hop in and get good real quick and some are going to keep making burnt toast for years.

 

What are your three best tips? 
Sanitation, sanitation and sanitation. 

 

Anything else we should know? 
You’re opening Pandora’s box once you start your first homebrew. It might be just a hobby or it might be the start of a new career.

In each issue of Athlon Sports & Life, we pick six of our favorite things. They may be books, automobiles, games, gear, booze, apparel or whatever happens to be awesome. Here's what made our short list this issue: 

 

2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport

There's one good reason this track-bred beauty has been making the rounds on automotive magazine covers recently: it's fast...really, really fast. It travels 0-60 in 3.6 seconds and handles the quarter-mile in 11.8 at 118 mph. Power comes courtesy of a 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine, capable of 460 goosebump-producing horsepower. Buyers can choose between a 7-speed manual or 8-speed paddle-shift automotic, and can keep this naturally-aspirated beast in check thanks to a Brembo braking system—adapted from the Corvette Z06—that takes it from 60-0 mph in less than 100 feet. All hail the new king of the road!
, $66,445

 

LifeStraw Go

This 22-ounce capacity refillable water bottle is a must-have for any hiker or outdoorsman. If you need water, simply stop by any water source (note: it doesn't filter salt water), fill it up and drink with the peace of mind knowing that it's not going to make you sick. We also love that there's no weird aftertaste. The secret to what makes it unique is the two-stage filtration that removes 99.9% of waterborne bacteria like E-Coli and 99.9% of waterborne protozoa parasites. We also recommend this for frequent travelers who may not always have access to filtered water. Expect to get about 264 gallons of water filtered through the bottle before you need to order a new filter.

Etymotic’s mk5 Isolator Earphones

There's a lot to like about these earphones. Let's start with the fact that they fit snug in your ear, canceling out ambient noise. The headphones come with three choices of earware: two are rubbery (coming in different sizes to fit small or large ear canals) and one set has foam eartips. Our favorites were the foam, which expand to fill the ear canal completely, keeping outside noise out and music in. One thing we realized quickly, if you don't get a good seal on the earpiece, the sound gets lost. In other words, make sure you have them in snug. Speaking of sound, the highs and mid-range are fantastic, making it ideal for audio books and podcasts. The lows (aka, the bass) was lacking, but certainly not enough for us to enjoy 90% of our music selection. We can't recommend these enough for commutors or frequent flyers who are looking to drown out the outside world.

Louisville Slugger MLB PRIME Bats

Produced by the legendary bat maker, this new wood bat line features a proprietary finish called EXOARMOR, which makes the bat two times harder that their traditional performance wood bat. That means more pop and distance to hitters. Beyond that, Louisville Slugger also allows players to customize their own via sluggercustombats.com. We tried it and found the options (color, size, fade, lettering, etc.) to be engaging and addictive. Better yet, you can see how the bat will look before you buy it, allowing you to experiment with crazy color combinations and finishes. It would make a perfect gift for any baseball fan, whether they use it on the field or as decoration for an office.

Camerons/Budweiser Indoor Outdoor Stovetop Smoker

For those who love smoked BBQ and other meats, but don't have the space or want the hassle of a large outdoor smoker, this is the answer to your prayers. The metal container comes with a rack to place the meat on, along with flavored wood pellets and/or chips to infuse a distinct flavor into your meat. The lid keeps the flavor trapped inside the container, so there's no need to worry about a smoke-filled kitchen, if you choose to cook it on your stovetop. We put it to the test with a large rack of ribs and the results came out great. There was no smoke in the kitchen and the flavor worked as promised. We found the smoked flavor to be moderate in taste that complemented but didn't overpower the meat. 

, $50  

 

Meathead: The Science of Great Barbecue and Grilling

We were interested as soon as we read the title. Inside Meathead Goldwin (check him out at ) and physicist/food scientist Greg Blonder take readers through the chemistry, physics and meat science behind barbecue, grilling, marinades, searing, and more in this must-read for every Man-Card carrying guy who loves to helm his outdoor grill. Better yet, this beautifully designed book comes with more than 100 tested recipes. A true bible for every barbecue and grilling nerd.

We understand that the Super Bowl is football's biggest game of the year, but it's amazing to see just how much money players can earn (not including their regular salary) for one 60-minute game. 

 

For example, in Super Bowl 50 the winning players will each earn a whopping $97,000, while each player on the losing team will earn $49,000. How does that stack up hisotrically? Here's a look at the winner's and loser's share from Super Bowls I-XLIX from the past 49 years.

2016 Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang

If the sound of this muscle car firing up doesn’t put a smile on your face, just turn in your Man Card. It’s powered by a 5.2L V8 engine that produces 526 tire-smoking horsepower. Plus, it looks like it’ll eat your wife’s sedan.

Starting at $48,000

 

NHL 16

This year’s installment of the popular hockey video game has some much-needed improvements, including a “Season Mode” and greater overall customization. Our verdict? It’s game on!

$59.99

Body:

With football season set to kick off, now is a good time to talk about another favorite pastime — drinking a beer while watching the game. We sat down for a cold one with ’s Nick Crandall, who gave us his expert opinion on everything from tailgating tips to Andre the Giant drinking 150 beers once upon a time. (And don’t forget, always find a designated driver and tip your bartender.) Cheers!

 

[Q] Do you have any tailgating tips?

Plan ahead and always start early.

 

[Q] What’s the best drinking game to play while tailgating?

I’m a big fan of cornhole, especially drinking when your opponent scores or whenever either of you score. The more drinking, the better.

 

[Q] What’s the optimal temperature for beer? It depends on the style.

But generally, lagers are around 40°F and ales are around 50°F. But each beer sort of has a sweet spot.

 

[Q] Which is the best way to serve beer: can, bottle or draft?

I prefer draft, since you’re automatically putting it into a glass, allowing you to smell the beer and appreciate the flavors more.

 

[Q] What is the proper technique to pour a beer?

Hold your glass at a 45-degree angle to start. Pour onto the side of the glass to reduce foaming. As the glass fills, slowly bring your glass back to vertical and create a little foam by giving some distance to the glass to create a nice thick head.

 

[Q] Why do some beers have fruit garnishes and others do not?

Some beers don’t need them.

 

[Q] What’s your personal favorite beer that your company brews?

Winterhook. Our winter seasonal changes a little each year, giving us a fresh new malty and hoppy beer each winter.

 

[Q] What’s the fastest way to make hot beer cold enough to drink?

I’m going to say liquid nitrogen, but I wouldn’t recommend that for safety reasons.

 

[Q] There’s a tall tale that Andre the Giant once drank 150 beers in one sitting. Do you believe that? Is that what it would take to get buzzed if you’re 7'4" and 500 pounds?

I do believe that the 8th Wonder of the World drank 150 beers, but I also believe that he was a little more than “buzzed” after that.

 

[Q] What question are you asked most about beer?

No doubt, how much beer I get to drink while I’m at work.

 

[Q] How much beer do you get to drink while you’re at work?

Depends on if the boss has gone home already.

 

[Q] What food goes best with your Winterhook beer?

Burritos. But I kind of just really love burritos.

 

[Q] How many beers are too many for one sitting?

I don’t know. I usually just end up standing.
