In honor of AHA Teach a Friend to Homebrew Day we thought it would be very appropriate to hold a homebrewing double header.  Both classes together at the same time and hosted by our Brew U and the Northern Brewer staff. 

The first of three Bare Bones Basic Brewing Sessions will kick off at 10:30 a.m. with one of the different American Pale Ales that we’ll be making that day.  We’ll take you through the process of making the wort and pitching the yeast. No super technical jargon, no advanced homemade brewing equipment, and no complex beer recipes.  We’ll make simple American Pale Ale without the geek speak and use basic equipment from a starter kit.

The Bare Bones Cider Making Session will also be kicking off at 10:30 a.m. starting with the pressing of the apples.  Cider making is extremely easy and we’ll cover everything from creating the must all the way up to pitching the yeast. 

Come see how both extract brewing and cider making are done and participate in discussions with experienced home brewers.  The end result of the batches will be served at an upcoming Baron meeting.  All beer made that day will be tracked in the Baron BrewBlog under the featured brews section on the Club Brews page –

No sign up is required, but you must be of legal drinking age to attend.  Like all Brew-U events there will be some homebrews available for sampling.  Do you have a homebrew?  Bring it!  We’d love to try it.  Questions about the event - email us at
