Reminder: King Co Library homebrewing classes starting

by Nate Muller, Senior Homebrew Correspondent

A quick reminder to all you beer geeks: The King County Library homebrewing basics courses are rolling.   Two of them are tonight at the Mercer Island and Maple Valley Libraries. The rest of the schedule is below.  I’m teaching the Mercer Island, Shoreline, and Kirkland Library classes. Best of all, these classes are free and don’t require registration. These classes are targeted to people who have never homebrewed before.  They will cover the basics of beer and how to brew your first batch of homemade beer. There will be time for Q&A for people who have more advanced homebrew questions.

I hope to see you tonight or at one of the future classes!

  1. Bummer that the closest one to me is the Des Moines session, but it’s on Mother’s Day. No way I would be forgiven for that!

  2. Man, I would love to do this, but a 1 year old kid makes it hard. Hopefully they’ll keep doing this and I can attend in the future.

  3. Attended last night’s class at the Mercer Island Public Library. Great class, nice to get an overview of the basics. Thanks to Nate for teaching it! Hope to see more stuff like this coming up in the future.
