What you'll learn in this beer brewing class:

Our intro classes are designed for the absolute novice brewer. They are a fantastic experience for anyone looking to develop a deeper understanding of beer, its ingredients, and the process by which it’s made in a friendly and savvy environment.

We teach in a concentrated format that focuses on a hands-on learning experience. Our teaching style is casual while also presenting a wealth of information. It is designed to provide our students the confidence, knowledge, and experience needed to become proficient home brewers and cultivated beer drinkers.

You will learn all the basics to get you up and running while brewing a batch of beer. You’ll learn about extract brewing, malts, grains, yeasts and how to avoid or troubleshoot the most common problems. All reference materials will be provided as well as a homebrew sample for tasting.

Q&A

Q: Is this class hands on? 

A: Yes, students brew a 5-gallon batch of beer in the class so they get to see the whole process. Students learn all about the ingredients in beer (and even get to taste some) and it is a very informative class. Unfortunately, beer takes roughly 2 weeks to ferment so students won't be able to take beer home.

Remote Learning

This course is available for "remote" learning and will be available to anyone with access to an internet device with a microphone (this includes most models of computers, tablets). Classes will take place with a "Live" instructor at the date/times listed below.

Upon registration, the instructor will send along additional information about how to log-on and participate in the class.

Question from salim k.
Do we get to take the beer that we brewed home with us?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Salim! Unfortunately, beer takes roughly 2 weeks to ferment so students won't be able to take beer home. Thanks!
Answer from salim k.
That doesn't make much sense. Does it need to be fermented in certain conditions which would cause fermenting at home not to work? Does the brewery sell the students batches, why can't they be kept by the students?
Answer from Douglas A. Verified Educator
Salim, you can definitely brew/ferment beer at home (that's the point of the class!), it's just that we can't offer students the ability to take beer home with them as we are not a brewery, we're a homebrew supply shop and classroom space. We'll happily help you pick a batch of your own ingredients to brew with at home, after the class.

Reviewed by Anonymous on 11/23/2019
I thought it was generally great, but honestly a little too fast. The teacher assumed we knew things we didn't even though he asked if anyone had brewed beer before. He was very knowledgeable, but sometimes he would do things and have his back to the class and we had no idea what he was doing.

Really fun class that taught you the basics of home brewing. I wish it had been a little more hands on but that it pretty difficult to facilitate. Would love to take more classes!

For a beginner, it was awesome, I had lessons in college, but these were just lessons, and I did not learn much from then... Now I understand, can't wait to go to my next class.
