What you'll do

You will experience a course in brewing beer! We will teach you the theoretical basics, but at the same time you will get your hands dirty, just a bit.
We will go through all the phases of brewing beer (malting, milling, mashing, boiling, hop additions, fermentation, carbonation, etc). You will taste different styles of beers, and correlate different flavors and nuances of beer with differences in the production process.
Off course, throughout the process you will be able to taste our brewery's beers, and get a small introductory course in tasting beers.

I've been a professional brewer for the last 5 years, even though I started making beer 17 years ago. In my previous life, I worked as a Chemical Engineering for a series of biofuels startups in the SF Bay Area. I and rest of the guys from the brewery have won gold, silver and bronze medals for our beers. We started teaching this beer making course in order to show people that, with enough love and dedication, good beer can be made by anyone in their home.

If you want to learn more about how to brew your own beer, and drink some amazing beers as well, this is your thing! We learned the basics on how to brew beer, and the chemistry of it, and you could tell that Marko knew what he was talking about (and the beers we tried, definitely proved it!) We felt that we could ask any question, no matter how basic, and Marko answered it gladly. This is absolutely something you shouldn’t miss if you’re in/near Zadar!

Was a great experience. Marko is a chemical engineer so he really knows what he is talking about and you can really see that brewing beer is his passion. He had complete and detailed answers for all of my questions and the hands on interaction of making our own batch was very interesting. Also, his beer is fantastic. I would recommend for anybody who is interested in brewing or just anybody who likes beer.
