About your host

I'm one of the co-founders of the Brewers Co-op, one of Cape Town's institutions for beer lovers. We are 16 home brewers who joined forces to start this owner-managed, co-operative, award-winning brewery. Come spend a morning with me, learn to brew, taste a few beers and join the craft beer revolution.

What we’ll do

We start with a very quick introduction into the science of beer making, and then jump right into it. We'll mash our malt (by this time you'll know what it means) and while that's happening we'll learn a bit more about the ingredients. You'll learn of the different types of malts, hops and yeasts, and how they each play their part in creating flavour, colour, aroma and body for your perfect…

What else you should know

We get a little dirty, there is some lifting, moving, open flames, and potentially dangerous chemicals - follow the brewer's instructions at all times. Wear shoes and comfortable clothing.

What I’ll provide

Drinks
Tasting tray of beers - a selection of different styles brewed on site
Equipment
All equipment and all ingredients

What to bring

Notebook - optional
Comfortable clothes (it gets dusty, wet and dirty at times)

Where you'll be

The whole workshop takes place in the Brewers Co-op brewery. We use some of the brewing equipment of the brewery, but substitute the boil kettle, mash tun and fermenters with smaller vessels that you could use at home. The beer tasting happens in the bar attached to the brewery.
