Brew Camp

Doser: Brew Camp

Founders: Jared Saunders and Whit Nelson.

Why we love them: Co-owners Saunders and Nelson have taken the “teach a man to fish” philosophy to a must more festive place. Little by little, they’re demystifying the art (and science) of homebrewing for Chicagoans. In addition to purchasing easy-to-use kits, you can also talk to the guys about concocting custom flavors or recreating your favorite beer at home.

Products: Tasty suds, free weekend beer-making classes and portable home-brewing kits are available at their North Center storefront.

Dose appearances: August 14 and counting.
