Free home brewing class on Saturday January 7th, 2017

We will be offering a free introduction to home brewing class on Saturday January 7th, 2017 from 10 am until noon.  This will be our 1st class of 2017.

During this class Tess and Mark Szamatulski, owners of Maltose Express and the brewers at Veracious Brewing Company, will talk about brewing water, grain, malt extracts, hops and the brewing equipment while brewing a 5 gallon batch of beer.  They pass around grains for you to smell and taste, hops for you to smell and beer samples for you to drink.  It is a great way to associated the ingredients in beer with the final product.
