What You'll Get
Brewing beer is a gentle craft, treating hops and barley to a relaxing malted bath, whereas winemaking savagely crushes poor young grapes beneath the feet of a fleet of virulent Frenchmen. School yourself in the kind and gentle art of home brewing with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a two-hour brewing class at BX Beer Depot in Lake Worth. Classes are available on the following dates:
- Sundays at 11:00 a.m.: October 10 and 24; November 7 and 21; December 5 and 19; and January 2, 16, and 30
- Wednesdays at 6:00 p.m.: October 13 and 27; November 10 and 17; December 8, 15, and 29; and January 12 and 26
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.
Students looking to put their new brew skills to work needn't go far to purchase all the necessary supplies since BX carries everything from kegs and kegerators to ingredients. The depot can even fill CO2 containers on-site, ensuring that a newfound love of beer crafting doesn't come between an already mature love of home paintball fights or home grease-fire extinguishing. Call 561-965-9494 or email email@example.com to make your class reservation.

- The friendly and knowledgeable staff also provide the service of teaching you how to Make Beer (or wine), and sell you everything you need to get started (and excel). – Brent G., Yelp
