Keystone Homebrew needs your help! If you like the idea of working with other brewers and winemakers, meeting hundreds of other enthusiasts and learning a tremendous amount about the hobby, consider joining our Montgomeryville team. Each day presents new challenges, and seasonal products and special events always keep things interesting. Preferred candidates will have some experience homebrewing, an interest in winemaking, a strong back and a flexible schedule. Please contact the Montgomeryville store by phone or email if you’re interested.

We have a few extra quarts of local raspberries available for anyone who missed the chance to preorder. These berries are fantastic for brewing and winemaking — don’t miss out; call now!

We’ll be running our beginning and intermediate brewing classes this summer, timed perfectly to make a great Fathers’ Day gift!

Introduction to Brewing: Wednesday, June 24, 7PM
Studio M Foods in Montgomeryville
This class for the first-time brewer will cover the basic equipment needed to homebrew and how it works. Participants will get hands-on experience brewing, bottling, and tasting homebrew.

The Next Step in Brewing: Wednesday, July 1, 7PM
Studio M Foods in Montgomeryville
This class is geared toward the new brewer who has brewed some extract beer kits and is ready to take the next step in homebrewing. We will concentrate on various ingredients and how they influence the final flavors of the beer. We’ll discuss a range of malt, yeast and hop varieties, and how best to incorporate them into a batch of beer. We’ll brew up a Keystone beer kit, which is extract-based with specialty grains, fresh hops, and liquid yeast. We will taste and discuss your homebrews and ours, so be sure to bring some!

Absinthe Tasting: Montgomeryville, Thursday, May 21, 6:00PM
