Brew Your Own Beer
July 8, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
Select and brew your very own batch (or batches!) of beer in this one-of-a-kind, hands-on brewing adventure. No prior experience necessary. Our experts will guide you through the entire brewing process — from selecting your recipe to bottling your brew — and at the end, you will have two cases (per batch, up to three batches) of your very own craft brew to take home and share.
With every group admission (1-4 brewers), you'll get:
- Ingredients to brew your recipe(s) of choice
- A brewmaster to guide participants through the entire process
- Scheduled time to bottle beer in Northern Brewer’s facility
- Bottles for each batch (2 cases, 48 bottles in all)
- Brewing and Fermentation space at Northern Brewer
How long does brewing take?
In all, the brewing process takes about 2 ½ hours. Daily time slots will be available for customers to schedule their hands-on brewing experience. Bottling will be done 2 – 3 weeks after scheduled brew day. We'll schedule a date to bottle on the day we brew. Bottling takes approximately 30 minutes.
What do I need to bring?
Apart from a willingness to learn and an open mind, nothing, really! We'll provide the equipment, the ingredients, and the expertiese to guide you through a successful brew. We'll even take care of the clean-up and keep your beer in a safe place during fermentation.
How many can be in a group?
There are no hard and fast rules, but we do want to keep the brewing experience hands-on and excitng for everyone invoved. With that in mind, for large groups we recommend 1-4 per batch. (If you have a group larger than 12, just give us a shout and we’ll be happy to set something up!)
