Brewer For a Day

Bright Brewery’s Brewer For A Day is the ultimate beer lovers’ experience!

Beer Lovers, Beer Nuts, Beer Curious – anyone who loves anything to do with beer – join our brewer for a hands-on day where you’ll brew a batch of Bright Brewery’s award-winning MountainCrafted beer.

During our Brewer For A Day experience you will brew a full commercial scale batch of beer from scratch. The day starts with milling grain and ends with transferring a full 1200 litres of cool wort to a fermenter, and inoculating it with the yeast, which will then turn into beer over the next few days.

The day is entirely hands on; you’ll smell, touch and taste all the raw ingredients and learn about brewing history, processes and the science behind the art. We limit the experience to very small group sizes so that we can tailor the day to suit your interests and experience.

From those wishing to learn the basics of craft beer (and what precisely makes it ‘craft’), to hardcore beer geek and homebrewer extraordinaires, all of our Brewer For A Day alumni have had a great time and have left the following stellar feedback.

Brewers receive a unique Bright Brewery brewer t-shirt to wear while brewing. We also provide morning tea and lunch and you will finish the day with a tasting of all the beers we have on tap, which you will have more than earned. When their brewed batch of MountainCrafted beer is ready to package, a complementary 6-pack is sent out for the brewers to taste and enjoy their own creation.

Additional perks for all the home brewers is the opportunity to purchase and take home wort to ferment with in their back-yard set ups.
