DEAL ALERT!!! Home brewers and Wanna Be Home brewers Check This Out!

Now that I have your attention....I want to let you know that there is an AWESOME deal for Charleston residents on LivingSocial today that relates to Home Brewing.  Octobachi (It's a restaurant) has a deal on Living Social today and it's this:

"Pay $89 (regularly $200) to participate in a three-hour class on beer brewing, and you'll delve into the history of beer, enjoy presentations by local brewers, and learn about the intricate process from in-house scientist Kirkman Lindsay Amos. You'll also taste up to 16 different brews, including a Pilsner, porter, pale ale, and brown ale. Held every Sunday afternoon from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., this exciting offering also includes a brewing kit, so you can start making your own suds at home. When you sip your homemade cold one, you'll discover the solution to the boring beer that used to ale you."

Wow....holy deal batman!  I called Octobachi, which is located on 119 Spring Street in downtown Charleston, to find out more about this deal and to make sure I wasn't dreaming.  I guess they do these 3 hour beer brewing classes every Sunday from 5pm to 8pm, so if you buy this you just call to sign up for the Sunday that you want.  He told me they actually brew a batch of beer that day, all the while teaching you about the process so you can do it on your own.  In addition, they will have local brewers from Coast, Holy City, Westbrook, and Palmetto giving presentations about brewing.  He said there will probably be one presenter at each class, not all of them at each class.  In addition, yes there is more!!!  In addition, you'll get to taste 12 different beers (it says 16 on the website, he told me 12, not sure what is true but either way it's awesome).  Lastly, you will leave with a home brewing kit so you can start making your own brew at home.  What What!!!  This is the deal of a lifetime!  Typically a beginner homebrewing kits costs anywhere from $70-$130 depending on where you buy it from.

So who's going to take the dive into the home brewing world and purchase this?
