Public Brewing School is Back in Session

| November 9, 2011

In less than two weeks, Public Brewing School will be back in session. This time around we will focus on a few new(ish) manual brewing methods, including the AeroPress and Clever Dripper, as well at the more traditional methods of French Press, pour-over, and Bialetti. Taste what’s brewed through the various methods and increase your understanding of brewing techniques to highlight the amazing flavors and aromas in your beans.

The next PBS sessions are November 19 and December 17. The Saturday morning classes begin at 10am, lasting about two hours, and are held at Caffe Vita Capitol Hill at 1005 E. Pike Street. The classes are free and space is limited. To reserve your spot, please email
