BentSpoke Brewing Co and the Canberra Brewers Club are teaming up this International Home Brew Day (Saturday May 6, 2017) to bring the public a series of demonstrations of home brewing systems in action.
“We’re inviting the public to come to our production brewery and cannery in Mitchell to see what a commercial brewery looks like, and then see eight different ways to make beer in their own home,” said BentSpoke co-owner and head brewer Richard Watkins.
“I’ve always been a big supporter of home brewing as it’s important to increase public awareness of good beer in general.”
As well as having eight home brewers making beer on site there will also be a range of other demonstrations. These will include; how to make cider from fresh apples, exploring DIY billtong, and how to roast your own coffee beans.
Starting at 10:00 am and running to 3:00 pm the event is free and there will be a free sausage sizzle running. Beer will be available for purchase (in addition to limited free samples of the Canberra Brewers’ creations).
Canberra Brewers Club President Charles Newton is encouraging the public to come:
“We at the Canberra Brewers share BentSpoke’s passion for great beer. Come along if you are thinking about dipping your toe into the brewing world, are already brewing or just want to meet a group of beer enthusiasts. We will have a variety of systems being demonstrated ranging from commercially available, highly automated setups to “pimped up kits” using simple and cheap kitchen items.”
