    Introduction to Beer Brewing

    This was a GREAT class! It was truly hands on and the teachers allowed you to ask all the questions you wanted no matter how silly they might seem. They really know a lot about home brewing and present it in an easy to understand way!

    Introduction to Beer Brewing

    It was a great intimate setting which made me feel like I could ask any question without sounding like a total amateur (even though I am). I also enjoyed the testing of other classes' brews and the fact that it's BYOB so you can enjoy your favorite bubbly while learning how to make your own!

    Thought this was great way to introduce the brewing process and not make it seem so daunting. Hopefully there are some follow up classes that I can take to improve on the skills I learned as I start making beer at home. Loved the conversational style so you could really get what you needed out of the class.

    Introduction to Beer Brewing

    This is a good introductory class on how easy it is to actually brew beer. If you have never brewed your own beer and were thinking about it. You need to attend this class. They went through step by step and answered and all questions. I look for word to more classes. Berry and Adam were great.

    Barry and Adam were phenomenal. They were extremely approachable, and seemed genuinely happy to be there. The class was interactive, and I felt very comfortable with the process of making beer.

    Introduction to Beer Brewing

    What a great class! I had previously attended an "Introduction to Brewing" at another place, but I wanted to do it once more somewhere else to see what else I could learn. This class was much more interactive AND included some beer tasting!!! In this course, we actually made a 5 gallon batch of beer that we can come back and help bottle when ready while taking home our own 6-pack on that day. The previous class was strictly talk. I recommend this course to anyone interested in brewing beer. Even though I had made several batches before this, it was still a very helpful (and fun!) course.
