Get hands on with the complete brewing process with this mouth watering full day brewery experience in Bristol.
- Bristol (Avon)
- Price for 1 Participant
Calling all Bristol based beer lovers! This brewery experience gives you a special behind-the-scenes look at everything that happens to get that sweet amber nectar into the bottle - and the chance to learn a few tricks of the trade while you're at it. If you're interested in learning more about the beer making process, from barley to bottle, this might just be the experience for you.
The day begins with a drink at the Bristol Brewhouse and Kitchen - a hot drink (it's only 10am, but beer o'clock is just around the corner!) and an introduction to the day, then it's time to get to work and do some mashing in - mixing the crushed grains with hot water. After mashing in you'll be treated to tasting your first beer (or 5!), a bacon roll and a discussion about what's actually happening to the mixture in the mash tun. Next up, with beer in hand, is the transfer, re-circ and sparge (don't worry, these will all be explained to you by the brewer!), then digging out the mash tun and starting the boil. This takes you up to lunch time. Lunch is provided in the pub, and you'll be glad to know it's definitely beer o'clock...again! After lunch, you'll get back to work. You'll add more hops to the mixture, as well as kettle finings, which make sure the finished product is nice and clear. Now all there is to do is transfer the brewing beer to the fermenter, where it will stay until it's ready for drinking.
Throughout the day, you'll get the chance to taste a range of unique Brewhouse and Kitchen craft beers and ales, with tasting guidance from your expert brewer, and of course your glass will remain topped up, throughout the day.
Upon leaving, you will receive a certificate and a 5L mini-keg of brewed beer (valued at £25) to take home on the day. Alternatively if you would like to take your own brewed beer home, then the beer will need time to ferment so the keg will be ready for collection 2 weeks after the experience day.
If you love the taste of a crisp, cold beer but you have no idea how it's made, you've always dreamed of making your own home brew, or you're looking for the perfect experience gift for someone who enjoys their pint, this full day brewery experience in Bristol is a great introduction to the brewing process. Bottoms up!
This experience runs Fridays and Saturdays (subject to availability).
