It’s beer o’clock, and we’ve got a brand new online class that’s all about the brewskis. Introducing Beer Brewing 101, taught by our badass brewer BFF, Erica Shea of Brooklyn Brew Shop.

Erica’s class makes beer brewing super doable right from the comfort of your kitchen. Plus, at the end of her class, you’ll have a refreshing batch of grapefruit honey ale to enjoy while you’re catching those last rays of summer.

Believe it or not, in just 30 minutes you’ll be ready to begin brewing your first batch of beer. How cool is that?

In the online class, Erica will walk you through all the steps to brew your beer, from mashing grain and sparging (say what!?) to adding in ingredients, and finally sitting back, relaxing and watching the effects of the fermentation process.

Just imagine: After the four-week fermentation period, you and your friends will be saying “cheers” with glasses of your very own spirited goodness inside. And think of all the delicious concoctions you can try out next.

And your awesome teacher, by the way, loves beer (duh!). But she actually didn’t fall in love with it until she starting making it. In fact, she describes her first batch as really old school. She used huge equipment, made a huge mess and has been hooked ever since. She started Brooklyn Brew Shop in 2009 to help others in their beer-making adventures (with less of the mess, of course).

So what are you waiting for? Get your brew on today.
