2014 has been a killer year for the folks behind Brooklyn’s premier beer kit company, Brooklyn Brew Shop. Not only have owners Erica Shea and Stephen Valand expanded their business to 13 countries, but they’ve also managed to start a nomadic brewery, Established Brewing Company, get hitched and release a new book. How they do it all is beyond us, but it looks like they have no plans of slowing down: This September, the duo will release a hard cider home brewing kit.
First, it should be noted that the new kits will not require users to make their own cider. Rather, the kits will help you turn regular, boring cider into the boozy nectar of fall we’ve all come to love. All you have to do is go out and purchase some cider from your local grocer, add some yeast to that bad boy (and store it somewhere dark and cool) and in a few weeks you’ll have hard cider. The reusable kit comes equipped with enough supplies to boozify your cider three times.
The new kits go on sale on September 15 and interested parties will find them on the BBS website as well as in Whole Foods and other retailers throughout the city and world.
