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.
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.
