Well, we spent a lot of time ferreting and rummaging around
the Internet for our readers, and came up with a few, carefully
selected, unusual gifts, guaranteed to provide joy and fun
to both giver and receiver.
The Beer Machine
This is a great gift for yourself, or anyone who loves beer
and is also concerned about good health. And it won't break
the bank as prices start at US$89 +s&h for the basic
model (one of the four offered).
The freshest, most aromatic, and therefore the
tastiest beer you can get anywhere is the one you brew yourself.
And you get to control the alcohol content as well.
beer is a concert of flavors and smells that has taken mankind's
entire history to perfect. As far back as 1600 BC, Egyptian
medical texts had hundreds of prescriptions calling for
beer, and those early brewers used natural and healthful
herbs such as balsam, dandelion, mint, and even oyster shells.
Treatments and recipes changed over the years, and in 1516
AD, the Bavarians passed a law, the Rheinheitsgebot, specifying
what ingredients could go into beer, making brewing any
other way illegal. Today, however, most brands of beers
contain a lot of extra ingredients, including preservatives.
The beer you brew yourself with the Beer Machine
holds to simple, strict standards of the Rheinheitsgebot,
uses traditional brewing methods in a modern machine Öand
ensures use of the highest quality barley, hops and brewers
yeast. (Early health teachers are known to have advocated
brewer's yeast in one form or another because it is rich
in the B-complex vitamins and other nutrients).
The ingredients of a good beer are natural
and pure. The fermentation process is also a natural process.
In fact, everything about beer is natural except when inorganic
and unnatural ingredients, like preservatives and fillers,
are added for the brew to keep till it can reach the consumer.
So, letís review the advantages of brewing
your own beer. It tastes better. Itís fresher. You can vary
the alcohol content. And it's different!
