Hobby- I agreeIveonly really just started brewing but considering my outlay on kegs and kit thus far it is not! But at some point, probably soon come end of lockdown and starting socialising and BBQs again , the volume brewed/consumed will start to bring the average cost down. For me its not cost- rather the fact having a new hobby has kept me slightly more sane, the beer is nice and there is some element of pride in serving something that I created/nurtured/didnt fck up too badly!!!
There's the odd exception, but generally agree that it's brewed to be cheap and inoffensive.Supermarket beer is **** and repetitive
