Brooklyn Brew's Stephen Valand and Erica Shea
Here's an idea possibly ripe for an L.A. micro-entrepreneur to rip-off, I mean adapt: the Brooklyn Brew Shop sells at-home brewing kits at the Brooklyn Flea market and online in delicious-sounding flavors like Chocolate maple porter and Grapefruit honey ale. A $40 kit brews about gallon of beer and looks like an easy way to ease into homebrewing. They're also working on more flavors like Lobster beer (made with the shells, not the meat) and Bourbon Dubbel.
