Weekly Demonstrations

All our Saturday brewing presentations are relaxed, welcoming and free of charge. They start at 9:00am and finish sometime between midday and 1:00pm.

21st April Ben's Style School: Tropical Stout

Arguably one of the least known and brewed of the stout varieties, Tropical stouts are somewhat of an enigma. They are also one of Ben's favorite beer styles. At this demo we will be exploring the style in depth, looking at its roots as Jamaican guiness and how it has evolved into the complex and interesting beverage it is today. We will be going over recipe design and technical considerations as well as covering the basics of brewing.

This will be a free demonstration with no bookings required.

28th April Dan Brews Vietnamese Rice Wine

In another life, Dan brews the Japanese rice wine, sake. We tried to get him to cunjer a sake demo, but it would take too long and there would be lots more standing around than even a normal G&G demo.

Instead, he will brew a Vietnamese Rice Wine called Rượu nếp. Rượu nếp is (depending on how you roll) either a wine, or a pudding, or maybe both. So don't be surprised if this demo contains a portion of booze and a serve of dessert.

As with all our Saturday presentations, this demo is free to attend and runs between 9:00 am and 1:00 pm. Bring your own English-Vietnamese dictionary.
