Welcome to Brewtorial

IT’S ALIIIIIIIIIIIIIVE! Our brand spanking new website is here, and with it the promise of many wondrous things to come. Designed by the wonderful Jack Freeman, this site is intended to become a hub for all things Brewtorial. While we’re only at the beginning of our (hopefully) long and prosperous span, we’ve got a huge amount coming up over the first year and we can’t wait to share it with you.

So what do we want to achieve with Brewtorial? First and foremost, we want to create a community – one that draws both budding and experienced home brewers to it. Because that’s what beer’s about isn’t it? Despite how you label it, beer has always been about bringing people together. It’s social glue. At least that’s how we perceive it. Therefore, it stands to reason that the process of creating it should be no less about that than the finished article itself. We want to use our knowledge to help usher people into this wonderful hobby, by creating a learning experience that introduces people to the art and the practice of brewing, without making the costly and time consuming mistakes.

As we grow, we will flesh out our classes into full blown courses. We will be looking in depth at every aspect of brewing, whether it’s breaking down the composition of various styles, an analytical study into ingredients, or something as simple as proper cleaning practices. In short, no stone shall be left unturned.

As well as this, we’re going to be putting our money where our mouth is and brewing our own, because why not? After all – why would you trust someone to teach you about beer brewing when they’ve got nothing of their own for you to try? We’re currently in the process of producing our first 3 beers for a January launch, and while we can’t talk about them too much now, what we can say is that two of them will be available for general purchase, while the other is being made especially and exclusively for a much beloved local business. Rest assured, we’ll be spouting our mouths off all over the place when they’re good and ready, and a few lucky people will be invited to taste and review them.

So in the meantime, sit back, relax, pull up a beer or two. There’s more from us right around the corner.
