Join the Brewski crew as leading beer-writer and educator Matt Kirkegaard explains beers, beer styles, flavours and beer’s history in a series of beer classes.
Over four nights, Matt will demystify beer by looking at what beer is and then at each of beer’s main ingredients. Classes can be done individually or as a block of four and include a welcome drink, a few slices of pizza and tasting samples.
All classes start at 6.30pm and will go for approx an hour or more.
Week Two: Malt
SEPTEMBER 29, 2014
We look at malt, the ‘meat’ of a beer and how malt influences beer flavour and colour.
Week Three: Yeast
OCTOBER 13, 2014
An often forgotten ingredient in beer, but arguably the most important. This week we look at the difference between ales and lagers, and the flavours that yeast brings to beer.
Week four: Hops
OCTOBER 27, 2014
Hops have become the focus for modern craft brewing and we look at how hops have evolved, their history and the flavours and aromas they bring to beer.
Venue: Brewski, 22 Caxton St, Petrie Terrace, Brisbane, Queensland.
