Brewing up a storm in Bakewell.
Many would say that Bakewell is best known for its baking and the world famous Bakewell Pudding........but this could all be about to change if new cookery school and artisan food events business Hartingtons has anything to do with it.
Bakewell has recently acquired brewing credibility following the relocation of award winning micro brewery Thornbridge Ales to the town. Now Hartingtons wants to teach the whole world how to brew fantastic tasting real ales and beer at home using 100% natural ingredients.
Hartingtons Artisan beer brewing course has been specially designed for all those who want to learn how to brew real ale in the natural traditional way.
Paul Taylor from Murphy and Son in Nottingham will demonstrate from first principles how to set up a 'brew' using basic domestic equipment and using 100% natural ingredients. He will also carry out a tutored beer tasting highlighting some well known and distinctive beers and what in the selection of their ingredients and the brewing process makes them taste so different. By doing this he will highlight how the brewer can change the mix to personalise their own brews to meet their individual taste. Paul will take people through the entire brewing process and the resulting brew will form the basis of Hartingtons first ever beer to be called Hartingtons Pheonix Ale.
The full day beer brewing course comes with beer brewing notes and a light lunch and at the end of the day attendees will have all the skills and knowledge to go home and start their own brew from scratch.
The course is proving to be incredibly popular with 5 spaces having been booked since the weekend.
Payment can be made online, by cheque or with a card and both gift vouchers and gift letters are available for those looking to purchase the course as a present.
