Instructors: Matt Belson + Brian Taylor
2 - 5pm
Join us for a celebration of craft beer with brewer and co-founder Matt Belson of Cape Cod’s own Devil’s Purse Brewing Co. In this workshop, students will learn about the rich history of beer, the ingredients that form a perfect brew, and about the brewing process itself. Students will explore various styles of beer, discover tasting notes, and learn about pairing beer with food. If you are beer obsessed or simply want to enjoy a local brew on a spring day, this workshop is for you.
The last hour of class we’ll get dirty with a fun clay project where you’ll make your own flight tray with Brian Taylor.
