One of the best ways to learn about home brewing is to join a local home brew club. This will allow you to compare notes and exchange ideas with other enthusiasts. To find one in your home town, check out Yahoo!'s directory. For online interaction, visit the home brew area of the Beer & Wine Forum on CompuServe.
If you're ready to give home brewing a whirl, but you're a bit reluctant to invest in the equipment just yet, there's a happy middle ground. The latest trend in brew pubs is referred to as the "brew on premises" pub, allowing you to make your own brew while dirtying someone else's kitchen! This is actually the perfect way to get started in home brewing as most brew on premises joints provide free training. To find a local brew on premises pub, hop on over to Yahoo!'s Brew It Yourself Directory.
Making your own beer is fun and fairly simple to do, and once your product is ready, it's a terrific excuse to invite some friends over for a party. Of course, may want to savor your special brew all to yourself. Either way, enjoy the fruits of your efforts!
Best wishes & happy brewing!
