This one-day course will introduce you to the entire process of making your own hand-crafted beer at home. You'll not only learn how to brew, but you'll also get to take part in the process with one-on-one instruction and a hands-on experience. 

This class covers a brief overview of the rise of craft beer, some of the different styles of beers, how to select a recipe, and what to expect when you shop at a home brewing store. You'll learn the basic principles of fermentation as you create your own beer from boiling to bottling, which will give you the confidence and skills to become a successful home brewer.

The total cost for this class is $149 for one person or $250 for two, which includes books*, materials, a sampling glass, hands-on instruction, a tasting, and light refreshments.

*The two person cost includes one set of books, but each attendee will receive a sampling glass and tasting. 

Know Your Brewer 101: Brad Moyer
A true believer in all things fermented, Brad is a 2007 graduate of Penn State University with degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Business Management.

Hailing from Pottsville, PA, he jokes about growing up with beer in his blood and Yuengling Lager piped straight to his house along with hot and cold tap water. His brewing resume has led him to such breweries as Dogfish Head, Appalachian Brewing, Troegs, Bubes Brewery, Scotzin Brothers Homebrew and currently 2050 State and Evergrain Brewing in Camp Hill.

To this day he still homebrews and is currently the president of the area’s most award-winning brew club: The Sons of Alchemy. Most recently, he has expanded his knowledge into traditionally fermented foods and wild bacteria fermentation. His experience and passion for the craft will guide you through an interactive journey to deciding if you want to dip your toes into making beer at home, or maybe opening the areas next biggest brewery.
