TORONTO, ON – Across North America, the first Saturday of November is recognized as “Teach a Friend to Homebrew Day”, and the Southern Ontario Brewers (SOBs) will be marking the date this year with their third annual Learn2Brew event.
Presented in cooperation with Amsterdam Brewing, the 2011 Learn2Brew day will be taking place on Saturday, November 5th from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM in Amsterdam’s brewing facility at 21 Bathurst Street in Toronto. The SOBs will be demonstrating a range of homebrewing techniques and equipment from single-vessel systems through larger 3-vessel breweries, with at least 12 stations on-site brewing a variety of ales and lagers during the demonstration.
According to event co-organizer Jason Stranak, the Learn2Brew day is intended to “attract members of the public with an interest in craft beer, homebrewing or anyone who enjoys tasting and learning about hand-crafted full-flavoured beer. We are inviting the public to come out to view the beer brewing demonstrations and learn about the hobby and ask questions about the brewing process.”
Amsterdam brewmaster Jamie Mistry will also be on hand, and there will be public tours of the brewery and Amsterdam beers available to sample throughout the day.
