The class was extremely informative and fun (we got to taste 2 different beers, both of which were produced by previous classes). The instructor was great and answered all questions really well.
Friendly and knowledgeable, made the process feel accessible to both beginners and more advanced brewers. An engaging experience with participation encouraged and a conversational teaching style. Delicious beer included!
