Craft Your Own Adventure Brew Day: Helm’s Brewing Company

By  | 

DIY has been a big craze lately, but have you ever heard of BIY (Brew it Yourself)? This boozy take on the crafty craze is the best of both worlds. At Helm’s Brewing Company, you get to exercise your creative abilities while learning (hands on) about the brewing process with their Craft Your Own Adventure Brew Day. This Saturday, enjoy a day of beers and brewing while you learn from a professional brewer. The event is from 11am to 3pm and cost is $65.

If you love beer, or even if you’re just interested in the process of making it, Craft Your Own Adventure is a great way to spend a few hours. You’ll get a tour of the Helm’s Brewing facility from one of the head Brew-Masters, you’ll have access to a state-of-the-art facility as you learn to brew, and you’ll be sure to make a lot of beer loving friends along the way. You’ll even get to sample grains and see how they are used to create different flavors.

Upon checking in for the event, you’ll receive a very warm greeting from the instructors who navigate the BIY workshop. You’ll probably be enticed to grab a beer and hang out until all of your fellow Brew-Masters arrive. When everyone is accounted for, you’ll get acquainted with your pre-set brewing station. Next, the instructors will walk you through a simple, but delicious recipe emphasizing the importance of recipe purity and timing. You’ll learn the steps of how to steep grains, measure out hops, and implement them in the recipe. Once your beer has cooled, the instructors will show you the proper way to bottle your beer and you’ll even get a complete kit for at-home bottling!

Here’s what else is included with your ticket to the workshop:

  • Tasty Flight: Sample the product from each location. Hear the story about how their beverages came to be and the lessons learned along the way.
  • Special Tap Release Date: When your brew is done, invite your friends down to the brewery to enjoy a pint of your brew. You get to explain to them how you did it and show off your knowledge.
  • Take home your own brew on release day: Each brew day participant will receive a growler or crowler of their beer to enjoy at home.
  • Custom Event T-Shirt unique to your event

There is something about brewing your own beer that feels so right! Living in a city known for its craft breweries, this workshop is a great way to get to know a little more about the craft beer community. Bring a friend and come see what all the hype is about! Cheers!
