But one thing you cannot do is make your own wine by yourself, bottle it yourself and slap on your own self-designed label.

However, you can do that at Purple Feet in Huntington Beach, Calif., which is a world away from California’s royal wine country.

At BrewBakers, you can brew your own beer with your own personal label — and have a party while doing it.

MINDY LACEY WANTED TO DO SOMETHING UNIQUE AND SPECIAL to celebrate the second anniversary with her boyfriend Jake Michaud, but she couldn’t find anything all that intriguing. Then, as she began scanning the internet, her eyes lit up as she read about BrewBakers, a Huntington Beach personal micro-brewery where people brew their own beer, bottle it and then slap on their own personal label to commemorate an event like an anniversary or birthday.

“This was the greatest and coolest thing ever,” Michaud said after brewing a case of his own beer. “I’m still stunned. I expected to come here and watch someone brew the beer. But Mindy and I wound up doing it ourselves. It was like, ‘Oh my God I can’t believe this!’ It was a total rush. I’ve never had so much fun. This is one anniversary I’ll never forget.”
