Beer brewing course

Beer brewing course in the historic mill brewery

Many people can enjoy beer - but only very few brew it

There is still no statistical survey that says anything about what percentage of the population can brew their own beer. However, we at Birgeler Mühlenbrauerei have already derived our “educational mission” in terms of beer brewing from this.

A day dedicated to beer

One day is all about brewing beer. Our brewery will become a “class(es) room” for this time. At the end of the day, you will receive your certificate as a brewing assistant with a wink and a handshake from master brewer Erwin.

The art of brewing beer

Everything you always wanted to know about brewing - find out here!

You will also learn about the ingredients of beer in accordance with the German Purity Law. You will learn what roles the ingredients hops, barley, malt, yeast and water play in beer production. Together with the head brewer Erwin, you will experience the different phases of brewing beer live and in practice and, above all, with a lot of fun, humor and joy. Mashing, malting, lautering, wort, cooling and fermentation will no longer be “foreign words” to you after the course. You will also be there when the head brewer gives the beer its own flavor on the way to the brewing process.

Let yourself be transported back to a bygone era

Brewing beer like the monks 150 years ago

In this beer brewing seminar, you will learn how to brew beer in the same way as the monks in the monasteries did around 150 years ago. This is because the brewing plant in Birgel works like a classic Schöpf brewery from this period, in which the beer is produced using only the hands of the master brewer and his employees. No electricity or electronics are used in the brewing plant. There is no agitator, there are no pumps. The system is fired with wood. The water is heated to 78 degrees Celsius during the brewing process. On the two days of the course, you will take an exciting journey into the past and learn about brewing the way monks used to do it.
