If you’ve seen a lot of people visit local home brewing and wine making stores lately like local West Sacramento wine making supplies store the Brewmeister, you shouldn’t be surprised. A myriad of old-school artisanal products and skills are enjoying a renaissance these days—among them the phenomenon of creating your own booze. Contributor Julie Tisner for Redbook Magazine shares her rather quirky thoughts on why such renaissance is occurring.

Probably not. Put someone who can brew a drink from nature forward, however, and then survival is possible.
