Activity Overview
With us - we make you the brew master. Our Brew On Premises is a DIY Beer making laboratory, completely at your disposal. Don’t worry about your experience level — our knowledgeable staff will support you with as much or as little expert guidance as you want. We’ll help you choose from our list of tried and true recipes or develop a custom formula that fits your unique tastes. We provide everything you need from recipe and ingredients to equipment and expertise.

You can make one or two batches of beer at a time. Each brewing session takes from 3 to 4.5 hours depending on your recipe and each batch will yield roughly six cases (144 bottles) of beer. Chose from one of our many house recipes or we’ll customize one to your specific needs.

SCHEDULE YOUR BREW DAY: Fill out the form on this page and choose your beer style(s). Choose from one of many different house recipes or send us a message discuss how we can customize one for you.

BREW DAY: Make the beer! Brew day is when the fun begins in earnest. During the brewing session you’ll work with a master brewer to blend malt, hops, yeast and water in perfect harmony to create beer. One of our experts will be on hand to help as little or as much as you need. Arrive at least 15 minutes in advance of your appointment. Reservations that are more than 30 minutes late without prior notice may be canceled. We’ll schedule the bottling day at this time. Up to 6 people are invited to join you and are included in the price. We’re happy to accommodate additional invitees and private events. Additional fees will apply.

FERMENTATION: Leave the beer to ferment. We’ll tuck your beer into our temperature controlled fermentation chamber where it will be lovingly cared for over the next two to three weeks. We’ll check your beer two to three days before bottling and will notify you if it needs more time.

RACK THE BEER: We'll prep it for bottling. Behind the scenes we rack (transfer) the beer to a bottling keg and prepare the space for your return visit.

BOTTLING DAY: Return to bottle your beer. You return and package the beer into either 12 oz or 22 oz bottles. Bring friends! Six cases usually takes about an hour and a half. You take all six cases home with you. Upon request, we can provide kegs (Sankey or Corney).

CONDITION & ENJOY: Take it home, condition and enjoy. All beers produced at Bitter & Esters are force carbonated and are ready to drink the day you bottle them. Many recipes will continue to develop and improve in the bottle with extended time and can be enjoyed for many months to come. Rinse, clean and store your bottles upside down for reuse next time you brew.
