Instructors also divulge how some of the professional techniques may be adapted for home use. Classes end with a beer tasting and discussion of beer types and brewing methods.
Thorn Street Brewery
When Dennis O’Connor realized his passion was brewing beer, not selling the materials to do so, he converted his home-brew shop into Thorn Street Brewery. Now, the brewery—complete with a seven-barrel brew house and a tasting room—offers oatmeal stouts, Kölsch-style ales, red ales, IPAs, and Belgian-style ales. In addition to sipping in the tasting room or on the open-air patio, visitors to the brewery can take home-brewing classes to hone their skills.
