Join us on Sunday 15 April 2018 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.
Here are the details:
The brew: Throughout the afternoon we will be jointly brewing a 40-pint batch of Irish red ale, while learning the basics of homebrewing, the ingredients, the kit, recipes and the processes.
The food: We will be keeping you well fed and watered throughout the afternoon, with various beer and food matches for you to try out.
The time: 2pm to 6.30pm, Sunday 15 April 2018
The place: The Edible Flower, 121 Middle Road, Saintfield, Co. Down, BT24 7LS
The cost: £40 per person plus £1 booking fee.

Here’s what Paul (who attended this course in February had to say about it:
“Thank you for such a great afternoon on Sunday. It was a real pleasure to learn from someone with such knowledge and passion for brewing, particularly as it combined the art, science, history and practicalities of it all.
And just when I thought things couldn’t get any better, in come Erin with amazing food and beers and I learn about pairing and the three “C”‘s!! Such a great experience – thank you both so much!”
