The only school where drinking beer is not only allowed, it’s part of the class.
VBW’s Beer School is a fun and informative event where you can learn a bit more about your favourite subject.
Class #1: Chris Lukie – “Let’s Get Brewing”
11:00am to 1:00pm
In this class, you’ll get an introduction to the brewing process, including a visit to the brewhouse itself with a hands-on demonstration by Swans’ Head Brewer, Chris Lukie. It’s a rare chance to see the inner workings of a heritage Victoria brewery and learn a thing or two about how beer is actually made. Participants will get to taste the beer that they help brew.
Class # 2: Danny Seeton – “Sensory Tasting Workshop”
2:00pm to 4:00pm
Prepare your taste buds for a guided tour of some of the most common beer flaws. Vancouver Island Brewing’s Danny Seeton will also introduce basic sensory theory and how various flavours interact in beer. If you want to understand and be able to explain exactly why you dislike some beers, here’s your chance!
$20 (plus tax) ticket per class or $30 for the Complete Course.
- each class includes one glass of beer.
