What you'll learn in this beer brewing class:

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&A

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.

Still have questions? Ask the community.

We don’t issue refunds, but if you need to reschedule your class for any reason, you can do so with 2 weeks or more advance notice. If you find yourself missing the deadline, try asking around and see if a friend can take your spot. You’ll get the refund and fill a perfectly good spot. Everybody wins!

I gifted this calss to my boyfriend because he is a super beer lover and wants to start brewing at home, I went with him because I thought it would be fun to learn. The class was super informative, very complete and clear. The instructor and all the employees at the shop are knowledgeable and very charismatic. Dave (I believe is his name) went trough everything in detail and was happy to answer any and all questions - some answers also came with advise rooted from personal experience, which I feel is super valuable. We got to try 2 beers brewed at the shop and we left with a how-to manual and recipe to try. Its great that they have all the equipment available at a reasonable price - we are going back at the end of the month to purchase ours. If you have some experience or no experience at all (like us) and are looking for guidance, this should he your 1st stop. A thousand thumbs up.

The class was very informative. Our questions were answered and we could actually participate in the brewing process. Through participation we were exposed to the products and techniques of making good beer. We will be back for other classes and to purchase our beer supplies.
