This is commonly done in the legal field Tim.
Yeah, people should resist from poasting advice in a thread that requests specific advice unless you've actually been prepped for interviews/resumes (i.e., not a 0L or clueless 1L).
Any OCS counselor, firm recuriter, or big law attorney will tell you that an interests section is indispensable for big law
jobs. As many poasters said, every single call back I went to brought up my interests as a way to break the ice and start the conversation. In one callback, the partner only wanted to talk about my interests as a way to get to know me better. Attorneys/Recruiters expect to see an 'interests' line--a well-prepped and thoughful one will serve you well. This answer obviously changes for non-big law jobs.
My personal opinion is that brewing beerz sounds pretty cool. Just cuz you make it doesn't necessarily mean you drink it. Anything that involves alcohol tasting sounds interesting in theory, but it could come off as snobby or sloppy depending on the interviewer.
