$25 for Beer-Brewing Class for Two ($50 Value)
During 90-minute classes, 20–25 students learn to concoct beers from malt extract by following step-by-step instructions from boiling ingredients to bottling. They'll also sample local home brewers' beers and receive a copy of Booth's Extract Brewing Guide.
Booth's Brewing outfits customers with quality beer- and wine-making supplies, from Briess dry malts to brew kettles by Blichmann Engineering. Hops-savvy staffers also guide students through the basics of crafting custom beers at home with beer-brewing classes. The sessions familiarize students with standard brewing equipment and ingredients, arming them with the theoretical and practical knowledge to successfully make beer at home without fitting their bathtub with a blowoff hose.
