Homebrewing 102 is our 2-part beginner brewing class. The first session lasts approximately 2 hours and we brew a batch of beer. Then in 2 weeks we meet again for about 2 hours to bottle the beer. You even get to take home some of the beer you make! 

We will discuss everything in the brewing process, including how to brew, how to bottle, some of the chemistry, and the ingredients that go into beer, among other topics.

Taught by Ryan, this class is a great way to get started in homebrewing. It costs $45/person and even includes a $10 certificate for the Shop! How do you beat that? Sign up two people for a class and save $10!
