Our intro classes are designed for the absolute novice brewer. They are a fantastic experience for anyone looking to develop a deeper understanding of beer, its ingredients, and the process by which it’s made in a friendly and savvy environment.
We teach in a concentrated 2 to 3 hour workshop format that focuses on a hands-on learning experience. Our teaching style is casual while also presenting a wealth of information. It is designed to provide our students the confidence, knowledge, and experience needed to become proficient home brewers and cultivated beer drinkers.
You will learn all the basics to get you up and running while brewing a batch of beer. You’ll learn about extract brewing, malts, grains, yeasts and how to avoid or troubleshoot the most common problems. All reference materials will be provided as well as a homebrew sample for tasting.
Q: Is this class hands on?
A: Yes, students brew a 5-gallon batch of beer in the class so they get to see the whole process. Students learn all about the ingredients in beer (and even get to taste some) and it is a very informative class. Unfortunately, beer takes roughly 2 weeks to ferment so students won't be able to take beer home.
