HOMEBREW ACADEMY FAQ'S
How do I book tickets?
You can reserve tickets online at www.walledcitybrewery.com/homebrew . You may also book tickets directly at the Walled City Brewery restaurant during regular opening hours.
What does the day entail?
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.
What are the different packages?
There are three different packages - Bronze, Silver & Gold.
Do I book for a specific date or can I purchase an open ticket (gift voucher)?
To book it as a gift voucher (whereby the recipient then can choose the date on receipt of the voucher), simply select which package you would like to purchase, then tick the box on the first page that says “Purchase as a Gift Voucher”. This will then bring you directly to the details and payment page.
To book a specific date simply select your package, then click the “Next” button on the widget. This will then take you through the process of selecting which dates are available, then onto the details and payment page.
How does the recipient of the gift voucher reimburse to pick a specific date?
On purchasing the gift voucher you will receive a unique code, which the recipient of the voucher can then enter into the box “Voucher Code”on the first page. This will then bring you forward to the calendar to select the dates available for the Homebrew Academy.
