Amsterdam Homebrew School
Have you got a passion for craft beer?
Have you ever wanted to know what goes on behind the scenes at a brewery? Have you ever thought “I like this beer, but I’d prefer it if it was a bit less hoppy”? Perhaps you've dabbled in some home kit brewing and you’d like more control over your brews?
At Amsterdam Homebrew School you’ll learn about all of the above and more. You’ll leave this 4-lesson fortnightly course equipped with the skills to homebrew the heck out of yourself. You’ll learn all about ingredients, processes, equipment, best practices,carbonation, bottling and much more. We'll also be brewing batches in class together, so you'll get hands-on experience.
This course is broken down into four 2,5 hour lessons at the ever-cozy “Tunnel37” location in Amsterdam West. Classes will be kept small, personal and fun. Classes will have small homebrew assignments that will allow you to take home what you've learned and apply it immediately. You can then bring your brew in so that your fellow classmates and our beer wizard, Kelly Milligan, can taste it and give you helpful feedback.
The course is limited to just 10 people per class, which is every two weeks, giving you more than enough time to work on your assignments and perfect your techniques at home.
The price of the course includes the four evening workshops, beer sampling, snacks and full class notes. We have also compiled a shortlist of brewing equipment that we would highly recommend you have in order to fully partake in the assignments (...and to eventually be able to make your own beer at home!). We are able to order this on your behalf so it is ready and waiting at the event venue on the evening of your first lesson if you so choose. This includes brewing buckets, thermometers, yeast, malt extracts, hydrometers and more - more than enough equipment to get your first batch on its way!
