This Tuesday is St. Patrick's Day, and Irish bars all across the land will be overflowing with people who may or not be Irish, all looking to celebrate with a hearty pint of brew. For years, NPR's Rob Sachs has joined in this annual celebration, but this time around, he's decided to go a different route and enjoy a beer at home — made at home.

Sachs speaks with Charlie Papazian, author of The Joy of Homebrewing, and some local homebrewers to see how viable it really is to brew it yourself.
