$225 for Members; $275 for General Public, Course fee includes four-sessions, two six-packs of beer, and art-making activiities.

What better place to learn the art of home brewing and connect to Newark’s beer-making history than the “house that beer built”? The historic Ballantine House, a wing of the Newark Museum, was built in 1885 for Jeanette and John Holme Ballantine of the celebrated Newark beer-brewing family. Kendall Alverez Eskew, of The Thirsty Quaker, leads participants through the brewing and bottling process and a well-deserved tasting of various brews. Additionally, the course includes a gallery tour to inspire your own D.I.Y. bottle labels, a tour through the historic Ballantine Mansion, and two cases of your creation to share with friends and family. No experience necessary. Age 21 and over.

Also, in collaboration with GlassRoots, participants will create an etched pint-glass with a unique design of your own, using the glass-design method of sandblasting. GlassRoots instructors will guide you in the creation of your design, using both hand-cut and computer-assisted stencil-masking techniques, and will then sandblast your design into the glass; a process where the surface of the glass is scarred or etched with fine grains of sand and compressed air. Since no heating or cooling is required for this process, all participants will take home their finished pint glass the same night.

Kendall has over a decade of experience fermenting beer, wine, mead, whiskey, kombucha, cheese and more. He co-founded the Jersey City Brew Club in 2010, and opened The Thirsty Quaker in 2014 – Hudson County’s only homebrew supply shop and a craft beer paradise.

Courses will run as scheduled only if minimum enrollment is met. If not, all registered participants will be notified within one week of first class and registration fees will be refunded.
