WESTMONT — Ever wanted to learn how to brew your own beer, in your own home?

The Home Brew Shop of St. Charles will host a Home Beer Making 101 class at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 17 in the Linden Room of the Westmont Park District, 55 E. Richmond St.

The program will cover an introduction to making your own beer at home. A demonstration batch will be made with their equipment while discussing basic fermentation terminology, sensory evaluation and procedures for consistently making great beer. A how-to guide will be provided to each student.

Before class, there will be a short tour of the Gregg House Museum where you can learn about the days of prohibition when the Gregg House was a speakeasy and Westmont being a wet community.

The class is for ages 21 and over. Advanced registration is required.
