4 hour class
This class will give you an introduction to the four main ingredients of beer - malt, hops, water and yeast. We will also be entering into a discussion of how these ingredients affect the taste of the final product, while learning about the different styles of beer and the families they relate to. We will also cover a brief history of beer, detailing the origin and the factors relating to why different styles developed in different countries. Finally, you will be led through a tutored tasting of a number of different beers linked back to the ingredients used and the styles.
