Head to Highbury for this full day brewery experience, a fantastic behind the scenes introduction to the process of brewing beer. There’s a lot of work that goes into making a good quality beer, and this day is the perfect way to learn exactly what goes on to make that sweet amber nectar! The experience takes place at a Brewhouse and Kitchen that’s renowned for its beautiful beer, so there couldn’t be a better place to learn! The day kicks off at ten am with a drink – but not an alcoholic one just yet! You’ll have a cuppa and an introduction to the day, and then it’s time to get to work with the first stage of the process; mashing in. This is where the milled grains are mixed in a mash tun with water and heated up. When you’ve got the mash in started, you’ll have a bacon butty and beer tasting break while the professional brewer explains the chemical process that’s happening in the mash tun, and begins advising you on the different beer and ale types brewed here. Next up is the transfer, the re-circ and sparging – by which point you’ll probably be getting fairly hungry, so it’s time to break for lunch, and…yep, you guessed it, another beer – we think you’ve earned yourself a pint by now! After lunch you’ll start the boil, adding hops and kettle finings to the mixture. Every part of the process will be explained to you as you get to it, so you’ll have a really thorough understanding of brewing by five o’ clock, when you’ll have done the clean up and be ready to head home… or back into the pub for another well-deserved pint! Upon leaving, you will receive a certificate and a 5L mini-keg of brewed beer (valued at £25) to take home on the day. Alternatively if you would like to take your own brewed beer home, then the beer will need time to ferment so the keg will be ready for collection 2 weeks after the experience day. If you’re a beer lover and want to know more about how the stuff is actually made, or you’re looking for a great gift for someone who appreciates a nice, cold, crisp pint of beer or 6, this Highbury brewery experience is one of our top experience gifts!
