Home brewing is fun, cheap and it tastes good – and we’ll be learning how to make our own next Saturday!
Join us for an All Grain Home Brewing Workshop at Beerguevara in Newlands. This hands-on introduction to home beer brewing will take a novice brewer all the way from choosing and weighing the right malts and hops to pouring your first beer into the fermentor.
The workshop will be hands on, from the grinding of grains through to the final tapping into fermentation buckets. It will be a morning of sharing ideas, asking questions and getting familiar with all the processes.
Started by comrades, brothers-in-arms and (as fate would have it) brothers-in-law, Anthony Cawood and Andrew Cook, Beerguevara is the all-grain home brewing supply store they wished they’d had around the corner when they started brewing.
But they didn’t. As it happens, their first foray into beer making was with a trusty Coopers Irish Stout kit – a recognised standard. To be honest, the stout wasn’t half bad (in fact, Ant and Andy managed to float an entire party on it), but it wasn’t exactly leaving them dreaming of their next brew, or fighting off their friends for the last bottle either…
So (rashly perhaps) they took a shot at all-grain brewing – that is, actually making beer from essential beer ingredients (hops, malt, water and yeast) and never looked back.
Beerguevara has also grown to become South Africa’s foremost supplier of hops, with the widest range of hop varieties in the country.
