We’re teaming up with Teneriffe’s original boutique craft brewery, Green Beacon Brewing Co. for a night of beer education and tastings!!
You will be run through the history of the brewery, as well as the history of beer in general. Students will be shown a hands on tutorial of the beer making process from raw ingredients to finished product, with a demonstration from the Braumeister (an all-in-one table-top brewing system). You’ll even be given tips on how to brew beer at home!
Students will be given the opportunity to taste the “wort” (unfermented beer), and of course samples of Green Beacon’s awesome range of beers!
And to make sure you don’t get a grumble in the belly while your brain is being filled with beer wisdom – our friend’s at Pizzantica will be suppling gourmet slices for all!
Stick around for a pint with the Green Beacon Lads after for an informal Q & A!
The Green Beacon team are a well traveled bunch… And what we all found incredible and exciting in our favourite cities like New York and London, was the communities’ accessibility to all sorts of wonderful restaurants, coffee shops, roasters, delis, bars and even the odd local small craft brewer.
We were intrigued by this and saw how well these establishments functioned within these communities and decided this was a perfect formula for our ever changing and forward looking home town of Brisbane. The obvious place to setup was Teneriffe, specifically because it is the pulsating and vibrant heart of Brisbane’s modern urban renewal with its festivals, shops, eateries, cafes, restaurants, galleries etc. A mix of locals living in a community that offers great diversity and reflects our ethos of quality, hand crafted local product aimed at the discerning drinker.
We are attempting to bring a new culture to beer, so prevalent abroad but only just gaining ground in Australia, that beer can be a product of huge flavour and depth, crafted specifically to be paired with different foods and indulge the senses. As the good beer guide to Australia suggests: With beer we encourage everyone to drink widely and drink well; drink less but drink better!
