Starting on the 17th of August 091 Labs will be hosting beginner brewing workshops with a local home brewer every Saturday for a period of 4 weeks (or until the end brews are ready to collect).

The cost of this workshop is €25pp and you will get to bring home 20 bottles/20 pints/10 litres of their brew at the end of the course.  You can also buy another starter kit at the end at cost price (€35) to do your own home homebrewing!
The course will be run with 2 people per brew kit (basically sharing the workload and end product brew).

You can register for the event on Facebook here or email events@091labs.com.



Please note that there will be a minimum of ten attendees so it is important to get in touch with us to confirm your place.

Week 1: (First meeting) – you will sit down with Geoff, homebrewer extraordinaire, who will explain the differences between the  different kinds of beers, explain the process of brewing (fermentation, bottling etc) and a trip to local craft beer pub The Salthouse for examples of beer styles (there will be a charge of €2 per attendee for sample platters). Attendees will pick what type of type of brew you want to make for the classes.

Week 2: The brewing proper begins.
Week 3, 4 or maybe 5: Teaching of proper bottling sterilisation and bottling of brew until it is completed.

The brewing classes will take place in the homebrewing corner of our hardware area at 091 Labs and tutorials/discussions will be held in the main room, usually for a few hours from noon on the Saturday. The brew buckets and other equipment will be supplied and stored in the brewing area.

This is a strictly over-18s event, ID will be required if necessary.
