    How to have fun in Clinton Hill? Alcohol’s usually a good start. It's always a good start. While you can spend the evening drinking at bars riddled with Pratt students, you can also learn the ABCs of home brewing. Extracting malts, grains, and yeasts, you’ll taste and sample some good ol’ home-brewed beers. Develop a deeper understanding of beers, other than “light vs. dark” or “light vs. heavy.” Beer’s better than that. And you’re better than that.
