Still Cooker is proud to announce the acquisition of 365brew.com, a website dedicated to conversations about the best craft beers in the United States, and the microbreweries that create them. An online platform encouraging the idea to “drink a beer and write about it.”
The acquisition was effective on October 29, 2022.
Why Was 365 Brew Acquired by Still Cooker?
Since 2013, 365brew.com has been a blog devoted to promoting the products of independent brewers around the country, as well as brew tours, craft beer tastings, and participation in live events, such as podcast interviews and in-person conferences.
365 Brew is aligned with the mission of Still Cooker to provide aficionados of craft beer and home distilling with thorough resources and a knowledge base to help the hobbyist go from beginner to advanced in their techniques.
“I was thrilled to find this online resource with so much passionate, personal dialogue that brought the craft brewing community together,” said Robert Kaser, founder of Still Cooker.
The content from the old website will be forwarded to stillcooker.com, effective immediately.
Building Your Own Home Brewery
Are you a fan of craft beer? With a little bit of planning and some basic beer brewing equipment, you can brew world-class beer in the comfort of your own home.
Of course, brewing beer is not without its challenges. You’ll need to be careful to sanitize your equipment and source the highest-quality ingredients, especially the hops. And you’ll need to be patient as your beer ferments and ages. But if you’re up for the challenge, brewing beer at home can be a fun and rewarding experience.
Homebrewing kits come with everything you need to get started, and they’re relatively inexpensive. We recommend this route as the best way for beginners to get started, because you’ll learn the basics without much chance of going wrong. Then as you get more experienced, you can try more adventurous recipes such as a Rich Porter Beer or an Old World Pilsner.
Brewing your own beer is a fun and rewarding process, and it’s not as difficult as you might think. With a little patience and practice, you’ll be whipping up batches of homemade beer that are sure to please your taste buds. Just don’t forget to buy a great beer fridge, because you can’t drink it all at once!

If you are considering distilling liquor at home, there are a few things you should know. As mentioned, it’s important to understand the distillation process and have all the proper equipment. But just as importantly, you need to be aware of the laws in your state regarding home distillation.

If you are willing to take the time to learn about the process and have all the necessary equipment, then distilling liquor at home can be a fun and rewarding experience.
The basic process of making alcohol involves fermenting a sugar-rich liquid and then distilling the liquid to concentrate the alcohol content.
