Event Overview

Finally Learn How to Brew Your Very Own Beer, Even if You Currently Have No Clue How it's Made.

Every beer lover eventually gets the urge to brew their own. Now it's time to follow through on that desire.

This class will teach you the basics of homebrewing. You won't watch a PowerPoint presentation or listen to a boring lecture on brewing theory. We're going to brew an actual batch of beer and you're going to help.

You'll get to:

  • **See AND participate in the brewing process every step of the way.

  • **Discover not just what to do, by WHY we're doing it.

  • **Touch, smell, and taste raw ingredients so you can learn the building blocks of a good brew.

  • **Ask me any questions you want, whether it's about equipment to buy, the process, recipes, or anything else that's on your mind.

As a bonus, I'll have samples of my own homebrew on hand and will walk the class through evaluating them from a homebrewer’s perspective (I'm also a beer judge and learning to judge beer made a HUGE improvement in my own homebrew).

After this class you'll walk away with the knowledge and confidence to tackle your own batch of beer. I promise you it will turn out delicious.

So start imagining what your first batch will be. A hop-bomb IPA? A roasty stout? A crisp saison?

Sign up for the class now and we'll make that brew a reality.
