Take your home brewing passion to a new level! Join Bob Sylvester - World-renowned craft brewer of Belgian style beers (Belgium, France, USA) - as he takes you through the entire beer brewing process from start to finish. Along the way, you’ll gain in-depth knowledge of the different ingredient varieties (grains, yeast/bacteria, hops) and processes (extract, dry-hopping, barrel aging) that go into craft beer as you learn how to brew a Blonde Ale, an IPA and an Imperial Stout.

Beer brewing is experiencing a renaissance and many of today’s successful indie beer brewers started out brewing in their garages.  This course is designed specifically for the beer lover who wants to go beyond the standard home brewing “packet kits” and really delve into the process. You’ll gain the kind of insights that a master brewer would normally impart only onto his apprentice and you’ll walk away with enough understanding to not only try your hand at crafting these tasty brews, but also improvise and experiment as today’s experts do.

Truly enjoyed the brewing class! I've been to many brewer talks but could never quite grasp the intricacies of the process. Maybe it's because some brewers don't want to give away their "secrets", but Bob was most organized and knowledgeable. Can't wait to lay some knowledge at the next craft beer fest! Thank you!

Sean G.

The beer brewing class was so informative. The step-to-step info was presented in a way that could get anyone up and running. Thanks a million!

Great information last week. I feel like I know how to get from point A to Z when it comes to making my own craft beer. Hope the wife won't mind but I think I'll start a brewery in my garage.

The first time I watched this class I forgot I was watching a class! I really enjoyed being able to learn different ways to brew beer. Watching it again and jotting down notes helped a lot when I started the brewing process myself... Just bottled the Blonde AleŠ Can't wait to try it out!

Heathcliff S.

I want to drink a beer with Bob! I learned so much from his classŠ And he seems like a cool person to have a beer with. Cool environment. The man knows his stuff.

Fritz S.

The class was good. I learned more than I expected to. Especially the extra stuff at the endŠ I bet most home brewers don't think about that stuff when they fantasize about opening a brew pub.
