Our Two-Hour Homebrew How-To for Just $5, with a Chance to Win a Real Bourbon Barrel

Who says summer school isn’t cool?

Over the past few months Edible Brooklyn and the Brooklyn Brewery have been hosting a slew of how-to sessions, from coffee brewing to making your own sauerkraut. The  latest installment on Wednesday, August 24 is the one we’ve all been waiting for, given our series’ setting: Dan Moss of Brooklyn Brewery, Stephen Valand and Erica Shea of Brooklyn Brew Shop (their shop was profiled here ) and Ben Granger of Bierkraft (the story of his homegrown hops are here) will be discussing the craft behind beer making, sharing tips, and offering samples of their suds.

Tickets are just $5 and Brooklyn Brewery beers are just $4.  Best yet, you’ll be able to enter “The Great Bourbon Barrel Giveaway Raffle” at the end of the event by signing up for the Brooklyn Brewery newsletter.  Winners receive an old Woodford Reserve bourbon barrel, which was not used to make a certain non-existent locally made stout. Doors open at 7:30pm and lectures run from 8 to 10pm.  Get your tickets here!
