Anthony Stone, one of our brewers here at Boundary Bay Brewery will be bringing his skills to BTC this summer. Through the Community Education program at Bellingham Technical College you can learn about homebrewing basics and/or the history of craft beers.
On Saturday July 24th, Join Anthony for Craft Beers…An Introduction to Styles and Flavors. This class introduces you to the basic ingredients that make each beer different. You will taste eight local ales and lagers along with focused food pairings. Tasting different beers will help you learn which ones you prefer while increasing your knowledge in general. Anthony paired up with the head chef over at BTC to find just the right palette pleasers to accompany each of the local beers you’ll be tasting. 3-5pm. $35.00
Then, on Saturday July 31st, Anthony will be discussing Extract Brewing 101 in Homebrewing Basics. Homebrewing is a fun and exciting hobby! Anyone can make a great tasting beer in their own kitchen. Learn the ins-and-outs of homebrewing moving through the basics while stopping along the way to talk about the ingredients which are used to make different styles of beer. Tap into extract brewing from brewing to bottling, to good sanitation and recordkeeping. 2-5pm. $35.00
Registration isn’t open quite yet for these summer courses, but we wanted to get the word out early for Anthony’s classes. These are the first of Anthony’s Community Education courses and he’s hoping to continue more advanced homebrewing courses into the Fall and Winter through BTC. Stay posted for details!
