With a background in architecture, product design and woodworking—plus a major passion for tipping back some homebrew—Michael is just about the perfect guy to reinvent the beer brewing kit. His new-fangled kit is less of a bulky brewing set that remains hidden away in the cabinet—and more of a brewing chemistry set, in which each component is carefully designed to fit into a handcrafted, reclaimed wood box. Yes, this marvel of good design is meant to be on display far after the hops and grains have gurgled on the stovetop.
