Beer Brewing Course

OrganicLea Beer Brewing Course
Saturday 2nd March 2024, 11am-4pm at Hawkwood Nursery

OrganicLea are running a one-day beer brewing course, suitable for complete beginners and those with some beer brewing experience already.

Spend the day discovering how to make your own delicious craft beer to enjoy and share with friends. You’ll learn about the science of fermentation, the different flavours and styles of beer, and how to make reliable beers from scratch, at home with minimal equipment.

It will be a fun, hands-on class, and will include:

  • an introduction to beer brewing,
  • an overview of the ingredients and equipment needed
  • an introduction to various beer styles and how they are made,
  • and a practical beer brewing session, with some beer to take away and ferment at home.
Please note there will be an hour for lunch, between 1pm – 2pm. Please bring your own lunch.


There is a standard fee for each of our courses.

To support our vision to inspire everyone to grow, and learn we have developed an easy way to be able to offer discounted spaces to those who need them. Please take time to read the guidelines and consider whether you can pay a solidarity rate (standard fee plus 50%).

You may also feel that once you have read these guidelines that you could pay a discounted rate (standard fee minus 50%).
