    I really enjoyed learning about the different bitter scales and the process of beer making. Max the instructor kept the participants engaged with historical facts on beer and there was some hands on participation. There is much more to learn, though this is a great beginner class to make a first brew.

    Very knowledgeable instructor, who had a good presentation and helped answer many "extra curricular" questions (around the malting process, mead vs. beer, etc.). Nice store as well, so if you're sold on brewing beer yourself you can stock up on your way out. No pressure at all to make sales, though - just very authentic enthusiasm.

    Anonymous review on 9/25/2022
    The class was both pratical and informative. I learned a lot about the basics of home brewing beer and the instructor was definitely passionate and knowledgable about the subject. We got to taste a pint each of 2 different beers (An IPA and Saison) made in previously classes, and they tasted great. Make sure you have something in your stomach beforehand if you are a lightweight! This would be a great class to bring a date or partner to.

    I bought this class as a gift for my husband, who is a huge beer lover, but had an unbelievably great time myself too. Lots of new knowledge, very positive vibe in a room, wonderful experience, and lots of beer to taste. We didn’t end up buying supplies and doing it at home, but it was a very enjoyable weekend activity which we were suggesting to friends afterward.

My mom was so excited to show off her new skills and recipes to the rest of my family. Highly, highly recommend for anyone in need of a date night, girls night, or special occasion.

Drink making refers to the process of preparing various beverages, including alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. It involves meticulous preparation and familiarity with relevant tools and equipment. Drink making encompasses activities such as mixing cocktails, brewing tea and coffee, creating homemade infusions, fermenting and distilling spirits, brewing beer, and making wine. It involves a combination of artistry, scientific understanding, and skillful execution to produce beverages that showcase creativity and taste delicious. 

Why You Should Learn Drink Making in NYC

It offers a range of different classes, from pasta making to wine tastings, each designed to combine cookery with social gatherings. 

Bitter and Esters offers a class called Brewshop 101: Home Brewing Essentials. This beginner-friendly brewing class offers a comprehensive understanding of beer, its ingredients, and the brewing process. Students will learn the confidence, knowledge, and skills needed to become an efficient home brewer. Students will brew a 5-gallon batch of beer and have the opportunity to taste some homebrew. 

Located in the Prospect Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, Bitter and Esters seeks to make the art of brewing accessible to all. As the city’s first do-it-yourself home brewery and supply shop, Bitter and Esters provides classes, resources, and a store from where to buy all your home-brewing needs. 

Another class that may be of interest is the Barrel Age Your Own Whiskey and Craft Cocktail class put on by Craftsman Ave. In this class, students will copper and create their own oak barrels in which to age spirits. Expert guides will walk participants through the entire process, from assembling the staves and hoops to charring the interior with a propane torch. Alongside these practical skills, students will learn about the history and significance of barrel aging alcohol. 

Craftsman Ave is located in Gowanus, Brooklyn. Their mission is to turn ordinary students into extraordinary craftsmen, including welders, woodworkers, welders, jewelry makers, leather crafters, knife forgers, and stained glass artisans. 

Aspiring drink makers may be interested in the Tour of Europe–Wine and Cheese Pairing class, hosted by Murray’s Cheese.

Virtual Drink Making Classes & Schools

Online classes are here to stay, and they offer both advantages and disadvantages over traditional in-person classes. On the one hand, online classes offer flexibility. With online classes, you have the freedom to attend from anywhere, whether it's the comfort of your own home, a coffee shop, or even while traveling. This eliminates geographical barriers and allows you to pursue education without the constraints of location. Additionally, online classes offer a vast array of options, giving you access to a wide range of subjects and courses from reputable institutions and experts worldwide.

On the other hand, online classes make it difficult to receive hands-on feedback in real time. Students often have to procure their own materials, or pay an extra fee to have them shipped to their house. Additionally, building a sense of community can be more challenging in a virtual setting. In traditional classes, students have the opportunity to interact face-to-face, engage in group activities, and form connections with their peers. Online classes may provide discussion boards or chat features, but it can still be difficult to replicate the camaraderie and personal connections that come with in-person learning. 

There are many options for aspiring drink makers seeking online drink making classes. The Chopping Block Lincoln Square, Chicago's foremost gourmet supplier and educational provider for food and drink enthusiasts, offers an enticing class called Virtual Cocktails: Tequila 101. Led by expert Christophe Bakunas, participants will delve into the world of tequila, exploring its taste and production. This interactive class covers various topics including bar setup, cocktail components, presentation techniques, and bar lingo. Students will leave with the knowledge and skills to craft delicious cocktails like the Last Word, Paper Airplane, and Corpse Reviver. 

The Teaching Table offers an online class on Plant Based Milks as well. Participants in this class will learn the art of making their own plant-based milks using readily available ingredients. Guided by expert instructions, students will acquire the necessary techniques to transform a variety of plants, nuts, and seeds into delicious and nutritious milk alternatives. Topics covered include the benefits and drawbacks of different tools, optimal soaking methods, and valuable insights into ingredient selection.
