Very Informative, Dave was very helpful. Going back for more brewing classes. Thank you
It was a great class! John and Dave did an amazing job. I will totally be going back to Bitters and Esters for more classes.
Instructor is great and experience. I got a lot of helpful information from this course!
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!
Great class. I learned a lot. From the description I thought that each student would make their own beer, but that was not the case. It was one batch for the whole class. But the class was still very helpful for a beginner. It would have been great to have the information on the slides in our booklets.
Great introduction to the art of brewing beer. Instructor was knowledgeable and had a good sense of humor. I went with a small group and we had fun!
Great instruction, great beer, great store
Really fun and informative class, and the free beers were great!
Very helpful and informative course.
