I must admit that I am a craft beer lover and what a joy it was when I walked into my best local beer selection store than to be told this following statement by Jordan Goodwin of Tulsa, Oklahoma who is one of the workers there. He said to me,
“Hey Jeremy, I just made one of my best home brewed craft IPA beers and I have one here for you to try so you can give me feedback on it.”
Talk about putting a smile on my face! Matter of fact, I think I had a “perma-smile” the rest of the afternoon that day (which was yesterday to be precise)!
I’ll tell you more about his homemade craft beer IPA in a moment along with my full review of it, but first I wanted to share with you what I think could be one of the most fun and Best Home Based Business Ideas for Beer Lovers or Beer Enthusiasts that you could start from home.
This business idea to Make Beer at Home came to me soon after I returned home and tried his self-made beer, then said to myself…
“Wow…this is really good and one of the Best IPA Beer homebrews I’ve ever tasted! Jordan should seriously consider starting a home based business around his craft and begin marketing his talents through his product!
And on top of that, I need to ask his permission to write a beer review about him and his beer (of which he named, “Pliny Clone”) so that I can help inspire other beer lovers to pursue their passions of starting their own microbrewery from home and turning it into a profitable business that could potentially improve their lives and their incomes all while having fun doing something they love!”
Wouldn’t that be awesome! 🙂
Heck, you wouldn’t even need a physical storefront…all you’d have to do is create a worldwide online presence by Getting Started Online with Your Own Online Craft Beer Website and you could just work from home and market your business and your awesome beer products on the internet!
Now because it is alcohol, I’m sure there are some Government Regulations that you would have to abide by so before you actually start selling and/or shipping your product, you should always check with your local, state, and country’s laws, bylaws, regulations, procedures and licensing requirements ahead of time.
However, you could still start your own website and at the least, begin building a following (otherwise known as a “Fan Base” or “Subscriber’s List”) by writing articles such as:
- How to Start Your Own Microbrewery
- The Art of Crafting Your Own Beer
- Home Brewed IPA Recipes (or any other type of beer recipe)
- A Personal Story About How You Began Your Love for Making Beer
- A Story About Your Future Brewery Plans
- Reviews on MicroBrewery Kits
- How To Videos
- …And Any Other Related Topic
While you’re waiting on Licensing and such, you could be monetizing your website/blog by placing banner ads for various products, books, how-to manuals, etc.
Or you could even write your own book or ebook on “How To Brew Beer Successfully in Your First Try,” or something like “A Brewer’s Guide to Opening a Nano Brewery” and then sell it on your site and through social media platforms for further income options.
If this has peaked your interests at all and you would like to know where to start, I have written a detailed article here on FiredOrDenied.com that explains both the easiest and the Least Expensive way that I have ever found for someone to get started online, and you can view this article here: “Get Started Easy & Inexpensively”
Just a thought worth considering! 🙂
Now On To My Full Review of Jordan Goodwin’s “Pliny Clone” Beer
Home Crafted Beer Name: “Pliny Clone”
Creator / Brewer’s Name: Jordan Goodwin
Date of Beer Review: February 20, 2016
Location of Production: Tulsa, Oklahoma
- After Effect
- Final Verdict
The first scent that came to my mind was actually one that I’ve never experienced in a beer until now, and that scent being one of a cannabis nature which was very pleasing. Other enjoyable scents I noticed were those of hops and citrus tones including sweet grapefruit and a hint of orange or possibly orange peel.
I would put the scents in order like this (according to my nostrils that is…LOL!):
- Sweet Grapefruit
- Orange (or possibly Orange Peel)
For Taste, I broke this down into two categories as follows:
- Frontend Taste = A sweet and lightly hopped, hydrating Grapefruit flavor that was very pleasing, even at first sip.
- Backend Taste = Dryer, lightly bitter with an enjoyable flowery lavender aftertaste.
Very smooth with just the right touch of carbonation, making it very easy to drink without the bloating feeling. Much easier to drink than even a soda!
Clean and clear with an Orangish-Yellow complex delivering light froth and soft bubblies.
Very enjoyable, slightly warm, cozy and relaxing feeling. Perfect for a sunny afternon on any given day.
My “go-to” beer as of late has been Founder’s All Day IPA (due to a combination of price and quality) and when I compared Jordan’s “Pliny Clone” to Founders side by side, my overall opinion is that I would switch to this beer and never look back at Founder’s All Day IPA ever again if Jordan had his beer readily available, considering the fact of whether they were comparably priced of course. 🙂
