homebrew night


Are you a veteran or aspiring homebrewer? Part of a club or flying solo?

Starting June 12th, we invite you to join us every second Wednesday of the month at the Taproom for a night celebrating all things homebrew.

Each gathering features the opportunity for guests to bottle share, taste and discuss their homebrews. We encourage you to bring your latest and greatest, connecting with fellow homebrewers new and old. Beyond the home brew itself, Workhorse has invited a guest host from one of four categories to shape conversation at any given event.

  1. The Art of Brewing - Includes tours of our facility from our brewing staff as well as discussions around innovations in brewing equipment and technique from professionals and homebrewers alike

  2. The Science of Brewing - Topics of conversation will be centered upon the nuts and bolts of brewing science, featuring talks by brewing science professors and laboratory folks

  3. The Business of Brewing - Want to go pro or curious about the operations of brewing? What does it take to open a brewery or ancillary brewing-related service/product? Hear from those who have done it before and partake in a lively Q&A to learn more

  4. Food and Beer - Have you ever wanted to cook with your homebrew? How about pair it with the right dish? Just love geeking out about food and bev? Speak with local chefs, restaurateurs and fellow home cooks on all things culinary

Additionally, once a year, members will participate in a homebrew competition featuring Workhorse wort. This event will be judged by a panel of industry professionals and will be a celebration of the creative spirit in homebrewing. We will also eat like kings.

Timing: Wednesday nights from 6-9pm (show up for any or all of the window)

Cost: Free, PAYG for beer
