Story: Unpaid domestic work

Home brew

Home brew

Home brew has traditionally been a male pursuit – an absorbing hobby, but also a way of saving money on beer. Wellingtonian Adrian Kingston makes home brew as a hobby, but he notes that his Bruin Bier costs about half the price of commercial beer. He prints the labels himself and has home-brewing friends in for tasting sessions, comparing his beer with the competition, both home-brewed and bought.
