Anyone can brew!
Sit. Stay. Beer. Package
Peaches Bed & Breakfast is proud to announce its three-night Sit. Stay. Beer. package for the ultimate craft beer aficionados. If you love craft beer and great food or if you’ve always wanted to learn to homebrew, this is a must attend event. Collect your friends and get ready for a fantastic time! Limited availability, so reserve now.
Thursday night- arrive at Peaches and settle in. Join the Welcome Happy Hour from 5-7 if you wish. Then wander downtown for dinner or brews.
On Friday wake up to the smell of freshly brewed coffee and enjoy a scrumptious breakfast at Peaches and a short orientation before heading out to the party limo for your guided tour of the beer supply super-store, Siciliano’s, where we’ll purchase the ingredients for the beer we’ll brew.
The tour will continue with four fabulous Grand Rapids breweries. We’ll get a backstage tour at one and there will be plenty of time to enjoy the brews & stories of all. The limo returns to Peaches and you’ll have the evening to check out Grand Rapids’ restaurants or more breweries for dinner.
On Saturday, after another yummy breakfast, there will be a hands-on brewing lesson from a local award-winning brewmaster. Yes, it IS possible to brew excellent beer in your own residential kitchen with a limited set of equipment! This brew demonstration is suitable for everyone from never-brewed-yet beginners to long-time homebrewers. There will be two sessions with a break in the middle to get lunch or relax.
Saturday evening, the festivities will continue with a highly entertaining and educational four-course beer pairing dinner by Chef & beer expert Katie Barnes from Relish Your Food Catering. Learning has never been so much fun!
Sunday morning, whether you started as strangers or have known one another for years, the group will have lots of stories and memories to share on your final morning at Peaches while enjoying a breakfast that includes spent-grain bread homemade from the brew lesson the day before.
