The EdgeStar Deluxe Mini Kegerator and the Conversion Kit are a great way to make serving cold draft beer a lot of fun. In today's Front Page article I'll explain why.

You can serve beer packaged with DraughtKeg technology, mini-kegs filled at your local brewery, your own home brewed beer or choose a beer available at the liquor store.

I can't always take brewery tours on weekends, but when I do I prefer visit my local breweries. ~Don't judge me.
On a hot summer day in late 1960 a friend of asked me to go for a ride and tour the Budweiser Brewery in nearby Newark NJ. I instantly agreed to go, what better way to spend a hot summer afternoon than cooling off inside one ...

Beginning this month I will be volunteering my time to take on the role of Editor for www.homebrewtalk.com FrontPage! As Editor I will draw from my years of brewing experience to provide homebrewers everywhere with the most up to date home brewing articles possible. I'll still be writing my three Front Page articles every month but if you have an article you'd like to have published just let me know.
