New interactive brewer workshops at GRAIN allow groups of lads to learn the processes behind their favourite craft brews and even create their own.
Have you ever wondered about the magic of the beer-making process? Are you fascinated by those for home beer is their daily bread and have you ever dreamed of making your own brew? Well, you’re in luck with the new Brewer Workshops on offer at Hong Kong’s GRAIN.
The Kennedy Town restaurant, a collaboration between restauranteurs Woolly Pig Hong Kong and Gweilo Beer, has already become the city’s favourite spot for craft beer lovers, with its 24 revolving taps, gastropub menus and Gweilo Brewlab, the venue’s on-site working brewery, which boasts a 500L commercial beer brewing kettle with six fermenters. Now you can do more than wet your whistle, with new Brewer Workshops.
Available every Sunday in November (and then the first Sunday of the month), the workshops are the perfect opportunity for beer enthusiasts to sample a range of malts, smell fresh hops, taste-tempting new concoctions, and tour the brewing facility to learn more about the brewing process.
Taking place at GRAIN’s dedicated workshop space, which is decorated with bags of grain and a mill, the workshops offer groups a hands-on experience of the beer-making process. The workshops, which also cover beer-related topics such as brewing basics, beer history and different craft beer styles, also includes a guided brewery tour, a beer tasting session with a flight of five signatures on-site brewed beers and sharing style snacks menu.
Priced is HK$480+10% per person (minimum of four guests per booking), each session is limited to only 16 guests, ensuring everyone has a great, interactive time. Bookings are essential due to limited seating. A private session is also available upon request with a minimum of six participants.
If that’s simply not enough to sate your curiosity, you and your wingmen can work with the Gweilo Brewer to develop your own signature recipe. The Gweilo brewer will guide guests through all the choices in beer styles, as well as types of malt, hops, yeasts and flavours. The interactive session will also involve tasting numerous brews to help create the ideal beer recipe for the guest. A minimum of 14 days advance booking is required.
Which we figure is about the right amount of time you’ll need to come up with a catching name.
