Brewers Basics

About The Class

Come learn everything you need to make your own homebrewed beer.

We will demonstrate the basics using a starter kit, followed by a Q&A session. Learn how to care for your equipment, improve on a basic canned "beer concentrate" kit with grain infusions, malt extracts, brew enhancers, finishing hops and other beer-y goodness.

This class is specifically designed for people who have never brewed before or have only just started out. All you need to bring is yourself... if you're lucky you might get to try something we prepared earlier!

Time permitting, starter kits and refills will available for purchase after the class if you're ready to get started on your own brew!

The class will take approximately 2 hours, but may be a little shorter or longer depending on the type of brew we do on the night and the how many questions come up during the Q&A.

Don't forget that our space is a warehouse so wear something cool or warm as appropriate for the weather.

The doors will open at 7pm, so please arrive on time, but not too early.

FAQs

Q: Tickets are sold out, can I still purchase a ticket?
A: No, we only sell a limited number of tickets for safety reasons, to ensure everyone is comfortable and can see the brewing in action, and to ensure everyone gets a chance to ask questions. Please don't ask to purchase tickets to a sold out event as it wouldn't be fair to other attendees.
Q: Can I be added to the waitlist for a class?
A: No, we do not have a waitlist for classes as there are normally no cancellations allowed on ticket sales. Please don't ask to be added to a waitlist as we don't have this facility.
Q: Can I purchase a ticket as a gift?
A: You can, but choose carefully as there are no refunds or exchanges on tickets if the recipient is unable to attend the class you picked. Ticket exchanges would be unfair to those who wanted to come to that class when it was sold out, and unfair on us to lose a ticket sale to that class. You might also consider a gift certificate instead which can be used for classes.
Q: When is the next class?
A: When we schedule classes they are listed above. You'll see it here first! Please don't ask us to confirm dates further in the future as we haven't scheduled them in yet.
Q: Will you be running a class on XYZ date?
A: We run a beginners and an intermediate class approximately every month. When we schedule in a date it is listed above. Please don't ask us to confirm dates not yet listed as we haven't scheduled them in yet.
Q: Can I purchase a ticket to a class?
A: YES! Please purchase online through eventbrite by clicking RSVP on the date you'd like.
Q: Can I redeem a gift voucher on a class?
A: Yes you can. As our ticketing system isn't part of our website you'll need to send us an email and we'll book it in for you. Email hello@thehopandgrain.com.au with your name, email address, voucher number and desired class date and we'll book you in.
