Sampled all that The Bruery's Tasting Room had to offer and found nothing you liked? Think you could do a better Belgian White than TAPS? Would you rather make the beer you drink than pay for it? Then you might be interested to know there's new homebrew shop that recently opened in Costa Mesa.
Windsor Homebrew Supply Co debuted a month ago at 743 Baker Street Suite D. It's not the only homebrew shop in OC–there are already a handful of supply stores scattered around these parts–but Windsor might be one of the first in the area to offer brewing classes.
And if you get good enough to graduate from the beginner's beer equipment kit that starts at $75, you could move on to bigger things or start trying your hand at wine making, or, heck, just start your own microbrewery, why don't you?
