Learn how to make, what you love to drink. The goal of this (3) evening class is for you to master Hal's Home Brew system and experience the simplest and quickest way to make craft beer at home. Enjoy the privilege of being the family brewer and start your personal path to beer freedom.
(Can't make the first day? A "make up day" schedule is available in the following link) https://fresnoideaworks.wildapricot.org/event-3227259
Sign up today to have Green Beer ready for you and your friends!
You can expect great instruction and hands on experience with simplified steps to making beer. You can keep brewing on your own after the class with all the equipment provided that home brewers use and master. At the end of the class you can look forward to special tastings with local microbreweries, as well as the chance to see behind the taps and get inspired. Bring friend(s) at the reduced price and craft (and drink) beer together, or use it to come back to the class and brew another batch and join the fun as usual. All consumables needed will be on hand. Plan a special date night or surprise your mate with the gift, a lifetime of quality brew. (He deserve it)
You now have the equipment, the know-how, and new beer friends to enjoy your beer creations for years to come, but until then, look forward to a case of your own homebrew you prepared in class! We all look forward to a taste!
Save and bring a 750 ml. bottle of homebrew and join us for our monthly Hal's Home Brew post-class meet-up. If you are an active member or you have a free trial month from Fresno Ideaworks (like the one included with this class) and you have some homebrew to share (like the beer you just made in class), we would love to have you there and share right back. Public location and times are subject to change please see posted times at the end of class. You don't want to miss out on free homebrew with friends at a local eatery, do you?
Stay tuned for more intermediate and other fun beverage related classes in the future...
