H.C.Ø has an active brewing community where you can brew your own beer and various alcoholic beverages. You do not require any previous experience to start brewing as we have regular beginner sessions where you learn the basics while being supplied with all the ingredients and recipes you need.
The facilities have all the basic equipment required to make beer, cider and mead which members can use free of charge.
Members are required to pay for ingredients, however all the ingredients for basic beermaking are available for in the brewery.
If you are interested or have any questions, please join our Facebook group

Q: Is it difficult?
A: Brewing is fundamentally simple and easy to learn, anyone can do it.

A few weeks after that it takes around 3 hours to bottle it. Afterwards the time is generally faster.
