ALL ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE

London Brewery Experience - Islington

Spend a full day learning how to brew beer at the Islington Brewhouse and Kitchen, and get a fantastic behind-the-scenes look at how barley is turned into beautiful beer!

London lovers of all things beer related, this is the perfect experience gift for you! You'll go to the Islington Brewhouse and Kitchen and spend a full day learning exactly what's involved in the brewing process, from barley to bottle. This is a great behind-the scenes look at the brewing process that makes the perfect gift for anyone who's fond of a crisp, cold pint, and would like to know a little more about what makes beer so, so good...

The day starts with a (non-alcoholic) drink - it's only 10am after all! Your expert brewers will introduce you to the brewery and the day, then you'll get to work by starting the mash in - the first step in the brewing process, where the grains are put into a big mash tun with hot water to allow the starches to break down. Once you've started this, you'll break for a well deserved bacon sandwich while the brewers explain a little more about what mashing in actually does. The next steps you'll complete are transferring, re-circing and sparging. No idea what this all means? Don't worry, your instructor will explain everything on the day! Once you've started the boil and added hops, it's time to break for lunch in the pub. After lunch you'll add more hops and kettle finings (for clarifying the beer), then you'll transfer the mixture to the fermenter, where it stays until it's at the right stage for drinking. You'll have the chance to taste a range of beers throughout the day, and need not worry about having a dry glass, at any stage!

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.


This full day London brewery experience is a fun and informative introduction to the brewing process, and makes an ideal experience gift for anyone who loves the sweet amber nectar and would like to learn a little more about it, or anyone who harbours dreams of doing some home brewing themselves.
