Introduction to Homebrewing – Sunday 22 January 2017



Join us on Sunday 22 January 2017 from 2pm to 6:30pm for an afternoon of brewing, eating and learning. Experience a full-grain brew – learn how to homebrew while enjoying some delicious food and samples of beer.

This is a course for people who have no homebrewing experience but are interested in giving it a go, or are already brewing from a kit but want to take the next steps towards a “full mash”. You are also very welcome if you like beer and just want to sit back, observe the transformation process of grain to beer and learn a bit about different beer styles, and beer & food matching.
