Brewers’ Group is a collection of both professional and amateur brewers, beer trade workers, beer enthusiasts or people who just want to learn a little more about beer and how it’s made.

The group aims to connect people from the entire beer spectrum so that we can share knowledge and experiences in order to learn from each other in an informal forum kindly hosted by MadLab. We would like the group to be lead by the interests of its members, but we’ve had some thoughts:

Talks about brewing
Experiences from industry,
Your home-brew set up,
Recipe development,
The science behind the brewing processes,
How to market beer and selling to the end-user, and
Open forum for discussions or Q and As.
Scientific Experiments
Yeast identification and development,
Hop analysis,
Grain characterisation,
development of novel brewing techniques
Brew-days
Collaborative brewing, and
practical experience with new techniques or ingredients.
Tastings
Examine how your beer has turned based on your recipe, and
Constructive comments from fellow Brewer’s Group members.
Visits and Brewery Tours

 

Brewers’ Group welcomes Toby McKenzie from Red Willow Brewery to talk about life at Red Willow. There’ll be some samples to try and your chance to learn how certain tastes are developed through the brewing process. It’ll be an opportunity to really get to meet the brewer!
We’d then like to give you the opportunity to air your ideas about where you’d like to see the group go in the future.
Lastly, home brew tasting. Please bring in your own creations for people to try and get some valuable feedback about your beer.
Finally, to a local pub for more informal chat.

We’d love to hear your thoughts on what you’d like to learn, share and get involved with.
