London Beer Lab
Arch 41 Nursery Road London SW9 8BP United Kingdom
Nestled under the railway arches in Brixton, the London Beer Lab is the longest established provider of beer making workshops in London, helping guide thousands of happy hoppers through the art of making their own special brew. Provided with all the equipment, ingredients, and beery inspiration, the expert instructors will aid you in crafting your recipe and guide you through the brew process - no previous experience necessary. Return after two to four weeks to bottle your beer and take home approximately 60 bottles of your own brew to enjoy the fruits of your labour with family and friends.
Brew your own craft beers during this half-day brewing workshop at the London Beer Lab. Tucked under the railway arches in Brixton, the independent micro-brewery offers a complete brewing experience from stalk and bine to frothy pint. The philosophy of founders Bruno Alajouanine and Karl O'Connor is simple – to teach Londoner's how to make beer. There are few feelings as rewarding as making something from scratch. To start with, you need to make a decision on the style of beer your group would like to brew. A recipe will be crafted by the London Beer Lab brewers for you based on criteria you provide. Then it's time to measure out the grains and mash in. During the mash your instructor will give an overview of the whole brewing process from start to finish, while sampling different grains and hops. After the mash, you will need to sparge the grain prior to bringing the wort to the boil. Once boiling, hop additions will be made prior to cooling and transfer to a sanitized fermenter. A gravity check will be made and you'll add your yeast before moving the beer to a temperature controlled room to ferment. Once fermentation has taken place, London Beer Lab will get in touch to arrange a time to return to bottle your beer. And just one week later, you'll be able to enjoy the fruits of your labour by picking up your very own batch of approximately 60 bottled beers to share with friends and family!
Workshops take place on Saturdays and Sundays Depending on the day, there are morning and afternoon sessions. Please contact your Truly Concierge for more information.
