$35 for a Brewing 101 Beer-Making Class for Two ($70 Value)
Three-hour classes on Saturday starting at noon reveal the steps involved in brewing beer from its basic ingredients: water, malt, hops, and yeast. From these four ingredients—and with supplies provided by instructor Kenny Anderson—students learn the principles of creating own signature batch. Each class includes a complimentary lunch.
Grape and Grains
The wine pours freely and the beer bubbles over frosty pint glasses at Grape and Grains, a family-operated homebrew and wine retailer that couples an appreciation for fine craftsmanship with a DIY approach. Owners Kenny and Janel Anderson—enthusiastic experts in hops and wine, respectively—have combined their passions into an enterprise that is one part supply shop and one part educational hub. As Janel presides over the wine bar and teaches classes in wine making, Kenny leads excursions into the complex world of home brewing, showing off the various hop varieties of IPAs and the tears of ousted MPs that give English ales their signature bitterness. The couple share their zeal for spirits with all comers at least 21 years of age, granting members of Grape and Grains' beer and wine club a 10% discount and military vets a 20% discount on products and classes.
