Even as home brewing has become increasingly commonplace, most beer lovers probably still think of mall-scale beer production as the province of homeowners with access to gigantic basements or garages — and, more likely than not, several thousand dollars’ worth of specialized equipment. Hopefully, this Saturday’s workshop at Preserved (4200 Piedmont Ave. #2) will put those myths to rest, as participants learn everything they need to know in order to brew a one-gallon batch of all-grain beer right on their kitchen stovetop. Gilbert Guerrero, owner of Temescal Homebrewing, will lead this hands-on class, which, among its other virtues, will feature plenty of samples for tasting. This session will focus on IPAs, so students are encouraged to bring a favorite bottle of that style to share with the class — and everyone gets to take home some freshly bottled beer.
