Village Voice's Description

John La Polla and Doug Amport founded a do-it-yourself brewery in Prospect Heights, where even the most beginner hop-head can learn to craft beer. Bitter and Esters hosts workshops for brewers of all skill levels and in the more advanced classes, folks learn how to make beers from masters at Sierra Nevada, Smuttynose,and Laguintas, while sipping on samples. Bring home a kit from the home brew store or use their equipment to cook up to a 15-gallon batch of whatever beer you choose. Other events include beer swaps, tasting events, and home brew competitions. --Jessica Goodman
