Well teach you how to get the full flavor of the beer, says brewer Luke Purcell. The two-hour class also includes a tour, an ingredients tutorial, and tips on fermenting and packaging.
The course is designed for home-brewers as well as for folks who want to know everything about the beer that theyre drinking. At the end of the night, everyone walks away with a Beer School Graduate T-shirt and commemorative glass. This is one class you wont want to be tardy for.
