This class is all about getting you started making your own flavorful craft beer at home. During the class you will help make a five gallon extract batch of Gingerbread Stout beer. We will steep some grains in water for flavor, add sweet malt extract, boil adding hops for a bitter counterpoint, cool it down, put it to bed and let the yeast do its work. 

During the fun, the following will be covered:

  • Beer history and ingredients

  • Brewing methods and factors in making great beer

  • Equipment needed

  • Proper brewing and sanitation techniques

  • The bottling process

  • Hands on brewing session

Best part? While you make the beer, you'll enjoy three 5 oz samples from the Brew Market's tap!
