This session of our beer school series explores the diverse use of hops as an ingredient in brewing beer. We will introduce you to the history and varieties of hops used in brewing, talk about hop cultivation as well as how hops contribute to the multitude of aroma and flavor to different beer styles and create the perfect balance to every glass of beer.

The admission price covers the tasting of our house beers to showcase an understanding of the flavors, nuances, and aroma of this ingredient. We’re excited to offer light food pairings along with the tasting presented by our Beer School partner Whole Foods Market. Together we will explore how food and beer can synchronize for the ultimate experience.

Join us as we launch this new series of Beer Ingredients classes designed to engage, educate, and excite our community of craft beer lovers. Maui Brewing Company is proud to offer this experience to you and we look forward to collectively diving deeper into the exciting and endless world of beer!
