This is Victoria's most delicious experience! Bright, one hour from Albury, hosts a brewing experience you'll never forget. Learn how to make that perfect brew with professional brewers who devote their life to it. You'll learn, taste, and get your hands dirty. A delicious lunch tops off the day.
Come along to Victoria's High Country and join Bright's brewers for a full day of brewing your beloved beverage. Up to 4 people will constitute your brew team and you'll get stuck into the wonderful business of milling, preparing, mashing, adding ingredients, changing temperatures - beer's a harsh mistress!
During the workshop you will brew a full commercial scale batch of beer from scratch. The day starts with milling grain and ends with transferring a full 1300L of cool wort to a fermenter, and inoculating it with the yeast, which will turn it into beer over the next few days. The day is entirely hands on; you’ll smell, touch and taste all the raw ingredients and learn about brewing history, processes and the science behind the art.
Using your new-found knowledge, you'll get your beer to the perfect taste and consistency. And there's even more to it - you'll learn about packaging and discuss the finer points until the cows come home.
The end of the day will see you relax with a tasting board of the brewery's finest - finally, a full-day experience with enough beer!
Your experience is in a very small group so that the day can be tailored to suit your interests and experience. From those wishing to learn the basics of craft beer (and what precisely makes it ‘craft’), to hardcore beer geek and homebrewer extraordinaires, this is the perfect experience for any beer lover.
Participants must be aged 18 years or older to consume alcohol during this experience, but under 18s are most welcome to brew without tasting.
