Have you ever been curious about how to brew your own beer? On Monday, March 10th from 5-8pm Beertender LA will be coming to the Golden Gopher to show us how to get our home brew on. Beertender LA is a home brewing consultancy specializing in teaching the basics of brewing beer, bottling, kegging, partying, and building camaraderie through the joy of brewing! They're going to show us all the stuff you want to know about making your own beers, plus they're ready to tackle all of your beer and brewing questions.
(Also, they may or may not be brewing a beer with us. It may or may not be a Golden Ale. The guys will be returning in April to show us what we may or may not have made. You follow...?)
Come. Learn. Drink Beer. Have fun. So, so simple.

See you on Monday. Cheers!
