To celebrate the incredible NI Year of Food & Drink , the Walled City Brewery are incredibly excited to be launching a first in Ireland – a school entirely dedicated to brewing called The HomeBrew Academy in January 2017.
This will be housed in our multi-award winning restaurant & brewery in Ebrington Square, Derry-Londonderry and will initially provide one day courses that will enable anyone to begin brewing amazing craft beers at home!
The course has been specifically designed and tailored by our own Masterbrewer James Huey who has drawn on his 12 years experience in the biggest brewer on the island – Guinness!
The morning session starts with a quick piece on the background and history of brewing, that will enable each student to understand and problem solve when their beer starts throwing some wacky flavours!
Following the award-winning beer themed lunch, we’ll then move to the brewery and run through a full homebrew session. There will be breaks whilst we wait for the brewkit to do it’s own thing, and during this we’ll work on our favourite pastime- beer tasting! This will include a breakdown of beer styles from across the globe and an appreciation of their differences in aroma and flavour.
We offer a variety of different options at the Homebrew Academy to cater for all levels of experience and budgets ranging from entry level Bronze to the incredible Gold package!! For further information please go to Homebrew Academy FAQ's
