Cider Brewing Class

About The Class

Whether you're a beer lover at heart who wants to expand their repertoire, or a cider drinker, this is a great class to take you through how to make your very own cider from scratch!

We'll take you through a couple of different cider recipes, showing you how to make your own apple & pear cider as well as some other interesting variations. We will also show you several different methods, using fresh pressed juice, store bought products and concentrates, so you can brew to your own level of experience and comfort.

This class is perfect for people who have never brewed before but will also be informative for beer brewers who have never made cider.

5L & 20L starter kits and ingredients/recipe refills will available for purchase after the class if you're ready to get started on your own cider!

Cancellations & Rescheduling

Refunds or changing into another class is at the discretion of The Hop + Grain. If you are unable to attend feel free to contact us to see if an alternative arrangement can be made, but understand that we may not be able to offer a refund or exchange depending on circumstances such as the amount of time prior to the class and the number of tickets sold. No refunds or exchanges will be given within 24 hours prior to the event or for "no shows"for any reason.

Available Dates & Tickets

To attend a class, click RSVP. You will be taken to our event partner website "Eventbrite" where you will pay and be issued your ticket.

No classes scheduled.


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 with your name, email address, voucher number and desired class date and we'll book you in.
