Classes and Events

Classes

Come learn about beer and brewing at our class, Brewing Beer in 1 Hour class. It's a fun and educational 2 hour class. We have classes at least twice a month.

Monthly Bottle Shares and Special Events

At Gnome Brew, we think the homebrew community is the best part about homebrewing. Everyone is welcome to the store any time to sample beers and talk homebrew. We host a monthly bottle share at the store that open to everyone. Also, we host special events about once a month featuring special guests and fun activities. Events are usually free but require pre-registration.

Support Your Local Homebrew Club

Gnome Brew additionally supports the local homebrew community by partnering with homebrew clubs such as Square Kegs in Lincoln Square, Evanston Homebrew Club and C.H.A.O.S.
