Hangar 41 Brew School

Welcome to Hangar 41 Brew Shop's Brew School, a basic level class designed for people who have never brewed a batch of beer before and are interested in learning how, or for people that have made a batch or two and still have questions.

This class teaches you everything you need to know to go from opening up an extract recipe kit, brewing up the batch of beer and then our favorite part, bottling it to enjoy with your friends. No prior knowledge of homebrewing is required.

Will we actually brew beer while at the class?

No beer ingredients will be harmed in this class, but they will be smelled and tasted! We will go through an extract ingredient kit and directions step by step so you will feel comfortable doing it yourself at home. When Rachel Ray demonstrates cooking Christmas dinner, she puts an uncooked ham in the oven and pulls out a honey glazed masterpiece 15 seconds later. We do the same type of thing... you won't be watching water boil for hours in class.

So how long does the class take?

We'll show you the entire process from opening the recipe kit to bottling in about 1 hour and 15 minutes. We think you'll be so excited after the class that you'll want to run back home and brew one right away... and we don't want to take any of your valuable time away from doing that!

How much does it cost?

Well, that is the easy part!  All of this valuable information for only $20 per person.  Ask for group rates when making a reservation!

Is there potential for a class to be cancelled?

Important note: We reserve the right to cancel classes that have 5 or less people signed up. We will provide a minimum of two days notification to all enrolled participants if this happens.

Interested and want to sign up or find out more?

We like to keep the classes small, no more than 12 people. Signing up is on a first-come-first-serve basis.  If you've got any questions, send us an email at .


Reservations are made over the phone.  Call us at 239-542-9463

You're also welcome to stay after class and pick up equipment and ingredients to make your first batch of beer at a 10% discount, a special perk we offer our newly graduated Brew School students. The store will be open immediately after class, and schmoozing with the professors is also encouraged, as they can provide tips on making your first beer a winner.

We look forward to seeing you in class!
