As South Florida's home-brew supply depot, BX assists brew masters and novices alike in their fermenting endeavors. Brewing classes lecture lager lovers and ale admirers in the fundamentals of batch brewing, providing a run down of everything from ingredients and equipment to technique and bottling, and the beer experts will brew a batch on site so suds-savoring students can easily follow along. Classes can accommodate up to 30 people, increasing the chances that singles mingling around the wort cauldron may bump into their fated stout mate or start up a bromance with a fellow hops enthusiast. Both relationships can be explored further at the group-brewing session, held immediately after the class, where local home brewers and beer worshipers meet up to socialize and discuss all things grain related.
