Belt Drive Brewing Company

How about a beer?  While working on my third batch of homebrew, a friend asked me what I was calling the beer.  I looked around and the Belt Drive Brewing Company was born.  I'm new to home brewing and still learning the processes, but I can say the best beer is your own beer.  I'll be posting pictures and recipes soon.  I am restoring an antique GE Monitor top fridge to store the homebrew.  In the mean time here are some links to homebrew sites that have helped  me out.  Enjoy!
