Douglas Amport and John La Polla founded Bitter & Esters, the city’s first do-it-yourself brewery, motivated by their knowledge and passion for brewing as equal parts art and science. Fueled by the desire to inspire, educate, and nurture the growing homebrew community in a friendly space, they conceived Bitter & Esters as a brew on premises location, complete with classes, and access to resources, as well as a supply store and creative hub for sharing brew tips and techniques.

Bitter & Esters fosters a deep commitment to the craft of brewing, as well as the creative spirit that comes with it. Anyone can learn how, so stop by! See what you can brew.

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.
