If you are a fan of craft beer, hard cider, or mead and have always wondered about home brewing, this site is for you! My name is Scott Pointon and though I am a librarian by day, my hobbies include woodworking, reading, travel, exploring gourmet food and drinks, and of course home brewing and enjoying craft beer!
In 2010 my wife, who is also a librarian, asked me to put together an
instructional program on home brewing beer and offer it at her library. The
program was a great success and it attracted many people to her library
that may never have gone there otherwise - the very goal of library
programs! Since that time, I have developed more programs whose reputation have spread
by word of mouth throughout the many libraries in Chicagoland, and I now
offer my programs several times each month. If
you are interested in booking a program for your library / park
district / senior center / or other venue you may contact me at
[email protected] You can also see a list of places where I have been and where I will soon be offering a You Can Brew It! program.
