Homebrew Workshops

For full details about our workshops, click here.

Our Beginners Workshop shall be given by Charles Gill, resident Chief of Beer at the Leamington Beer & Music Festival. In this HANDS-ON workshop you'll learn some of the basic theory and techniques, before getting on with the opportunity to help prepare a kit beer from scratch, and help to bottle a batch we prepared earlier. You can even take a bottle home with you at the end of it all! (subject to availability).

The Intermediate/Advanced Workshop is being taken by Richard Allen from Beer Torrent, who will take you through three different brewing processes - Extract Brewing, Full-Mash Brewing and Braumeister Brewing. Click here for more details.

You don't need to register to come to these workshops, just come on down and join in.

All workshops are free for festival attendees (including those who came on the Friday/Saturday, keep your wristbands on!).

Under 18's may attend the workshops if accompanied by a suitable adult, although they may have to sit out selected hands-on aspects and any tastings.
