As our town continues to enjoy the renaissance of beer making and resurgence of local craft breweries, many Cincinnatians have turned to home brewing and crafting their own styles and flavors of beer.
In this four-week introductory workshop, you will learn about different parts of the brewing process from an expert in the field – Garrett Hickey, Streetside Brewery’s founder and managing brewer. You will learn the importance of style and yeast selection; review the equipment that all brewers need; identify various materials and beer ingredients, including hops, malt, yeast and adjuncts; explain the brewing process – from grain to glass; and distinguish different beer flavoring. The class ends with beer tastings – learn how to drink and evaluate beer during the final week.
