Brewing beer, unlike drinking beer, is an interesting, memorable talking point after having done so in massive quantities. Create remarkable conversation starters with today’s Groupon: for $22, you get a homebrewing class (a $20 value), a beer tasting (a $10 value), and a growler of beer to go (an $18 value) at Malty Dog Brewery & Supplies in Southfield (a $48 total value).
With 22 years of brewing experience, Malty Dog Brewery pours an assortment of handcrafted brews designed to seduce taste buds and tempt ambitious homebrewers with do-it-yourself recipes and homebrewing classes. During the 60-minute introductory class, carbonation creators maneuver through detailed instructions on how to use equipment, perfectly combine hops and malt, and harvest yeast from fields of abundant bread. Participants can savor a flight of four to five beers from Malty Dog’s taps, discussing each ingredient's impact on the flavor, as well as the correlation between foam on the nose and dignity.
In between taste-testing sips, guests can select their favorite fermentation to glug into the take-home growler, a milk-upstaging half-gallon jug. Once fully inspired to produce hoppy, home-born beverages, guests can use a $10 coupon toward the cost of a home-brewing starter kit complete with a Malty Dog recipe.
