Douglas Amport and John La Polla founded Bitter & Esters, the city’s first do-it-yourself brewery and homebrew supply shop, motivated by their knowledge and passion for brewing as equal parts art and science. Fueled by the desire to inspire, educate, and nurture the growing homebrew community in a friendly space, they conceived Bitter & Esters as a brew on premises location, complete with classes, and access to resources, as well as a supply store and creative hub for sharing brew tips and techniques.

Bitter & Esters fosters a deep commitment to the craft of brewing, as well as the creative spirit that comes with it. Anyone can learn how, so stop by! See what you can brew.

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.

Was informative, however not as hands on as I wanted it to be. Thought each person in the class would be able to do the brewing process. The instructor was the only person that made the beer and called up about 6 people to help him.
